The amount of wood used so far to make an "all aluminum plane" has probably been enough to make a Fly Baby.

We spent about two hours cutting the false rib template and making the first rear channel jig ( both shown in the photo ). Most of that was figuring out the fancy new tool. It even can with an instructional DVD.

The router also came in handy cleaning up the workbench edge that 1) wasn't cut very straight 2) has been drilled more than Paris Hilton.
