I still have another wing to do. What really messed me up were a few roundover spots where the wood started to tear out. There's more of that on the other wing. I think it's time to sharpen my router bits... or find softer wood.

It sometimes helps to look at climb cutting in certain spots with the router depending on the grain. You probably already know this but just in case you don't, have a gander here ... px?p=56809

I love reading all these build threads - makes me miss my tools (but not the mess :lol: )
