So I'm back. After a bit of a delay due to traveling for work, vacation, getting engaged and moving, things are finally starting to settle down. Yay life. The new place I live in is a really nice place in a great neighborhood that we're house sitting for some friends for almost a year. The owners went sailing for the duration in the 55 foot sailboat that the guy built himself. So needless to say, he's got a woodshop. But the garage actually has a car in it so I only get half. No big deal, that's what I've been working with for a while (slowly). I put most of my tools in storage because all the tools were already here. Here's a shot of my half of the garage all set up and ready to go again.
I put the fuselage frames up here for storing them while we're here.
That first door on the left closest to outside is a little side room with the woodshop. A real woodshop.
Needless to say, it was a lot of work to move all this stuff and set it all back up again but now it's time to get back to work. Back to where I left off, I reattached the rib that I split off to fix the angle at the base of the trailing edge rib. Same clamping method as before. Float sanding check looks good now.
