Trying to do a few things here and there between trips and other activities. I made the stabilizer clamping jig that I hope to use for bending the plywood skin around the leading edge. It's sitting up higher on blocks so the jig doesn't interfere with the skin and the blocks at each rib are only screwed into the table in one spot so they can pivot up against the rib.

I also beveled any plywood that runs up against where the skin will go. As the manual suggests, this is done because the plywood and spruce expand and contract at different rates and this will avoid the plywood from affecting the look of the skin.
