My friend Matt came over today and glued his rib. It's always nice to see all the work come together when things get glued down. I watched over while he glued and he did a great job. Now he gets to start over and do the structure again. At least he doesn't need to do the jig over again. Here's Matt with his super awesome glued rib.

Later on in the day, I drew the pattern for the next rib I'm going to tackle, station 2. I did the same thing I did with station 1, starting with marking the measurements. This time though, I used the pounce wheel after to mark the outer rib lines to make it easier to place the holding blocks. I used the tracing paper for this so I could align the traced pattern with the measured marks I made previously.
