I had a little time this morning so I started working on the next rib. This one is station 14. As you can see, I'm reusing an old jig. This one doesn't overlap too much with previous one so it won't be difficult not to get confused.

I like the current way I'm making these jigs. Starting with a reference line I use only the blueprint measurements at first. Then, I use the tracing paper to trace the rib lines and match that up with my measurements when I use the pounce wheel through the tracing paper onto the jig. I don't rely on the transferred rib lines for the shape of the rib, only for which way to tilt the wood holding blocks. I use the precise measurements to place the holding blocks to try and be more accurate.
