« Part 4: Ribs Part 5 of Building Teardrop No. 2 series Part 6: Plates »

I was able to salvage the one cracked rib by slicing it into 4 parts. Here I am using a Dremel cutting wheel to do the job like a safer, mini table saw.

And then the linings are glued to the top and bottom of the ribs to thicken the gluing surface for the plates. They are held fast with many little clamps.

The edges will be planed level.

I saw a guy use a similar set up to make his own toothed blade plane. It workled well for what I did too.
