I can't possibly let a beautiful sunny weekend go by without laminating something. Next on the list was the top half of frame #4. This frame will be attached at an angle to the bottom half that I previously made. I don't believe they need to actually be joined until around the time I'll fit the canopy which is many years from now, so I'll just keep them both around until then. Here's the mold before I cut it out.

I cut out and sanded the mold as usual to prepare it for gluing. I ran out of electric tape to cover the inside edge of the mold so I'll have to do the actual gluing tomorrow.

I also made some gussets and some of the framing for frame #5, which I'll glue together in a couple days.
