I released the pressure on the curved bottom brace today which let me mark the last couple frame #6 braces for final fit. At first I though I had over bent the brace because it was too far up at the tips. But after a half hour of opposite pressure the curve was dead on, even after all pressure was gone. I get all sad and then happy...sad....happy... I'll make sure it stays in the right shape until I glue things together to make it rigid. I'm not sure if I'll glue it all at once or if I'll do it in stages. There's quite a bit of little pieces to position and it's important to ensure every joint has pressure. Look ma, no hands!!
