Already made my New Years resolution. Giving up on tv until the XL is done.

The spars go a lot faster - the left & right of it bears measuring twice - cutting & gluing once the result...

Got it from Clark's Hardwoods in Houston. They have a limited supply and are considering discontinuing the Spruce. Apparently the only people who buy it are plane builders. I bought enough for two sets of wings ;-)

You going to have the Eagle at Oshkosh this year?   I am going to try my best to be there again.

Yeah, Christmas is Great!

It's amazing how easy it is to buy stuff when you're way out in the country. Even easier when you're down with a cold.

I'll make it to Oshkosh, but probably not the Eagle. I hope to fly the Eagle to Reklaw thou. We'll see.

Any chance we could get your weights on front and rear spars only, just like you showed?   I even would be interested to know how close they are from side to side?

Good going Frank!
