Remembering the warning about plywood butting up against the skin I worked on beveling the plywood anywhere on the elevator where it would sit up against the skin. Something about the plywood not shrinking or expanding at the same rate as the spruce so it would end up sticking up against the skin and show through the finish. It's really slow work but I started out making alot of the angle with a power belt sander. I did most of the elevator spar angles today.
