Looks like a good clean build OB, and a good start.

What are you using, CA, epoxy, Tite-Bond, something else?

The accurately lined up gussets at the rib ends show that your building skills are perfect so there is no reason to shy off of building..way to go OB!

When I do fiddly work for a while my fingers cramp and lock up! Then I'm done for awhile! Makes me mad! ...Very aggravating!

Well, allow me to also say a great job on the build. I cannot honestly see or say anything else about your build that has not yet already been mentioned.

NICE! I'm sure that you've enjoyed what you've done thus far. Try that same pace moving forward. There's always setbacks..but they can provide opportunities toward diversity.

Thanks for the encouragement guys.! I have to find problem solutions and materials pretty much with what I can scrounge in my garage. No hobby shops around here any more.
