Brief Description:  Continue Fuselage Layout

Plans:
1. Improve the shop with needed tools.

Status: Complete. Brought up the ShopSmith Mark V. This will be handy for several woodworking tasks. I am specifically planning on configuring it to be a larger drill press with a large table. I also connected up a pop rivet gun to a new compressor. This is a must have tool given the hundreds of rivets required for this build. Pulling steel rivet by hand takes too much effort. And third, I leveled the main work bench better.

2. Continue layout of fuselage.

Status: I made good progress on this today. I located the majority of fuselage tubing using blocks. The blocks hold the tubs in their exact position during assembly. Once all the blocks are placed I will cope the tubes and rivet them in place using gussets. Basically this is the primary technique for building the airplane.
