I more permanently fixed the table top down today. I biscuit joined the two sides of the table top with a butt joint in the middle. The shims were nailed down and I used epoxy to glue the table top down on them. It may not be perfect. The sides and the middle are a mm high so I may try to fix it with the power sander. It's good and stable otherwise. A big improvement from before.

I also glued the tapered pads on the forward fin spar, and while I had the glue out, the plywood pads on the aft face of the flap/aileron spars. Oh, and I primed over the rivets on those hinges that I riveted together.
