Wing Skin Riveting (Wings)
1.2 Hours

Previous - Index - Next

This morning, I got out to the garage and started thinking about building the wing cradle for storing the wings after they come out of the jig. I cut up some 2'x3' pieces of plywood for the ends, using what used to be the top of my custom wing crate. I should be able to salvage enough scrap wood to construct the cradle without buying anything new. I do need some more screws and other miscellaneous stuff from the hardware store before I can start putting it together permanently. I also need to figure out how to make the leading edge shaped cut-outs in the one end without a band saw or jig saw.

Later, Emily came out and helped me rivet about 3 ribs worth of the inboard top skin. It's awesome to see the wing going together permanently. Hopefully I can convince her to help me more soon and get this thing out of the cradle.
