There are transom kits for the RICE LAKE and Ontario WHITEHALL rowing boats.
The material can be mahogany, white oak, white ash or black cherry.
The kit will have 3 or 4 boards which have been planed both faces; the edges have been passed over a jointer. A plate joiner (also called a biscuit joiner) has cut matching slots in the edges to be connected.
We ship the boards and biscuits; the builder glues up the boards to make a panel. The actual transom shape is drawn on the panel then cut out and prepared for becoming part of that rowboat.
