The lower half of the capstan fitted together with bars constructed from 1.5x1.5mm walnut.
The central dowel of the upper half of the capstan will pass through the quarterdeck and butt up to the central dowel of this capstan, simulating a one piece assembly.

The Fore riding bitts fitted around the fore mast partners. These are extremely large because, when the ship was riding at anchor, the strain of holding the cables was taken up by these bitts.
