Rub Rail/stiffener
« on: September 01, 2010, 06:19:44 pm »
What are some options for the rub rail on the body.  I'm not much of a wood worker, more like a wood butcher, but is there a profile that can be purchased that would work good for this purpose?

I used a 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 hemlock handrail.  I planed it down to about 1" in thickness, put on Danish oil and polyurethane clear coat.  It turned out OK.
