The name given to the thin flat wooden patterns made in the mould-loft for all structural parts of the ship being built. They include not only the keel, stem, and stern frame but all frames, bulkheads, and decks. Together with these moulds, bevel boards are produced to give the differing face angles of the frames and beams.
