Just received an email from ASpruce and the wood is shipped it should be here Thursday 2/5.

Should be back to rib building soon!!

Next major order is going to be the Drag Wires and metal components for the wings.

After talking to Wayne this weekend, he was dying to do something so he stained the spar router box. LOL

Dave is hoping to move his plane out of his shop in the next few weeks. So the frame progress should heat up soon too.

Cranked out 4 #11 Ribs today. We were finishing one just under an hour. Wayne cut the gussets on the table and the noses on the router. I cut and fit the 1/4 inch.  I’ll get pictures of the finished ribs up asap. Hopefully Friday we will get back at it.
