Burnishing - Jewling - Machine Turning - call it what you wish

The seat cushion arrived from the upholsterer today. We had them put the old style buttons in the cushion, just like the Curtiss drawings.

Hey...the first panel was finished! Four Roloc disks later and four hours worth of work and the entire panel was done.

After the burnishing, the bead roller was used to put the 3/16 in. radius beads into the panel.

Two lines - 15/16 in. apart...according to the Curtiss drawings.

Here is the panel in place.

We also cut out the left side cowling.

More soon
