no previous part Part 1 of Model Bell 407 helicopter project series Part 2: Cutting Out The Basic Shape. »

My Dad and I made a trip to the Black Forest Company today and picked up the supplies for the helicopter project. The body will be out of cherry, the main rotors will be wenge and other details will be other exotic woods such as padauk and yellowheart. This evening I laminated the sheets of cherry into a 7” by 7” by 27” (length) blank. Tomorrow the new bandsaw is going to get quite the work out cutting this baby out. Hopefully all goes well.

I saw what I thought was a helicopter in one of your pictures. Having a model to scale from is the best. Keep us posted.
