The below images illustrate our mast construction. It begins with (3) 2” laminates of “aircraft” grade sitka spruce, 26’ long. A tapered pattern is then marked on the four sides and it begins to take shape on the band saw. The four corners of the blank are then power planed off equally, giving the blank eight sides. The remaining corners are hand planed off, resulting in a near round blank…it is then sanded smooth.
