I’ve had a bit of a lull in my woodworking, but finally delivered one of the planes to my Project Manager Janice’s grandson Shadair. Janice said he liked it but wasn’t going to smile for a picture. I’m happy that one of the...

As far as woodworking I'm pretty much a newbie. I've made a few items. I've spent way more on tools than I have on wood. I enjoy the heck out of making a project - designing, figuring out how to build it, building it, learning what I did wrong and how to make it better the next time.
I'm a software engineer for my day job and also write and record music as a hobby.

I decided to just wipe on some Danish Oil for these projects, mainly because I’m lazy and didn’t want to try to do the Arm-R-Coat. I MAY spray some shellac on them but I’m not committed to it at this point. Sometimes it seems easier to apply fi...
I cut the main wing struts a bit over length, with the expectation that I’ll have to fit the struts on each plane. There are 8 struts that hold the top wing on – it doesn’t have any connection directly to the fuselage. I used store bought 3/16” do...
As I mentioned earlier, another LJer, nitewalker41, had modified my plans (see the earlier notes) and I liked how he did his landing gear struts better than my original design so I followed his lead. I bought some 1/2” dowel from Lowe’s. That w...
I laid out the wings on 10 1/4” x 4” x 24” pieces of poplar (after replacing the one I’d used earlier by mistake). Here’s a picture of the lower wing outline along with a vertical tail piece outline, showing that they easily fit on one of the work...
