The wing rib is an "extra" from a Stearman repair my airframe instructor did. The nose block is the only original (before repair) part on the rib, the rest is new material. I borrowed the rib to make a jig for some as of yet undetermined future project.
I did get a thumbs up from my wife to make some aircraft parts like this wing rib and hang them on the wall in our living room! I also want to make some 1/4 scale ribs based on this airfoil and layout for gifts and decoration.
After I finish A&P school in May I will start thinking about a build project. I started to build a Volksplane project (an all wood construction) before I started school but decided not to continue it because my mission requirements have changed.
