Jared came home and helped us to setup the tools (plus went with me to buy a bunch of things we did not have in our shop).

He taught us how to use almost every machine (band saw, bench grinder, air compressor, air squeezer, and the list goes on) but also (more important) helped us to build our first piece of the airplane!

Here we have Elen doing the honors of “clecoing” and drilling the first holes of the stabilizer.

And here you see me proudly holding the final (primed) piece!

Thanks again Jared for the incredible support (you just need to pick your home improved store right next time!).

This is the vertical stabilizer
