Bevelling the bow stem
A low angle block plane is used to bevel the inside bow stem. The angle of the bevel is determined by placing a batten (or long piece of staight, flexible wood) along the forms and matching the angle that the batten crosses the stem -- the idea is to get as much surface contact for gluing the planks to the stems.
