I bought a cedar strip in May outfittied with a thwart instead of a real yoke.
I recently bought a cherry yoke from AO and have removed the thwart .

Im a tad frightened my skills dont warrant me trimming the yoke to size and doing a proper install. ( For one I dont have a drill press ) and fear cracking the cherry and dont want to spend another $90 for another yoke.

Im leaving Thursday for McCraney L and will need the yoke in. Im guessing its 30 minutes work to a pro.

Anywhere I can bring it so it can be done professionally ? I can always do the dowel plugs myself at a later date.

Assuming your thwart was of proper size, could you not just use that as your template?

Thats where I got a bit stuck...Using the thwart holes as the guide the new yoke is about 1/8" narrower, thus putting the possibility of the new holes too close to the edge, but your thought is a good one, using the thwart as guide holes for the drill ( something I didnt think of)..also the thwart had a slight angle to the mitre cut which would precipatate a coping saw purchase.
