Stabilizer / Fin attach block

Built the fin attach block on the center rib of the stabilizer today. The block was cut on the bandsaw to the 2 1/2 in by 3/4 in by the rib profile. Then, a 1/4 in dado was cut to fin underneath the capstrip and against the rib.

Then, the block was cut to shape and given a slight taper on the top. The leading edge of the fin bolts on here and will be drilled later.

Clamping and glueing.

Also, finished the leading edge today (no picture). The final holes were drilled and countersunk. It's in primer awaiting the epoxy finish coat.
