More elevator work

It's amazing how three hours can go by and all you accomplish is a bunch of little things....The second elevators had the cap strips glued, nailed and clamped today. Here's the result waiting to be cut and fitted to the spar.

Also, the cross braces were cut from the 1/4 in Finnish Birch sheet. A lot of time was spent cutting and fitting the wooden blocks where the elevator control horns will attach. You can't see them here, but I hope to have them glued on during the next shop session.
