After this, I have three more frames to lay down. These will be on two different 4' by 4', 3/4" plywood sheets. The largest frame that is under the canopy will be one of these, but this one is also two halves glued together and they are too big to fit for female frames on one 4' by 4' sheet. I'll split it up between the other frames I have yet to draw. It's just one solution but it should work.
I ordered the last few things I needed in order to get started making parts. I needed clamps (tons!), hand shield cream (like invisible gloves...coolest stuff ever), and a mass scale to measure the two part glue substances for mixing.
Once I get everything I'll spend some time making practice glue joints to test the glue batches I have and work out the technique required to make good glue joints. The first frame the manual suggests making is the diagonal frame between station 2 and 3. It's only a half frame and there are no tight curves so it should be easier to make. If that's not a disaster, I'll go from there. But for now, I'll keep drawing.
