Today, I also cleaned up the frame #6 gluing strip and frame #2 diagonal laminations. For the frame #6 gluing strip, I marked off the shape of the final part and then used the bandsaw and sander to shape the piece. Here is the frame #2 diagonal and the frame #6 gluing strip with marking and after the finishing.
And to top the day off, I glued down the structure for the first frame #8 and joined frame #1. I've been saving frame #1, the firewall, for last due to the complexity of the internal frame structure. I want to spend extra time on measuring everything out and understanding what the structure is for. I'll probably work on that after thanksgiving.
