Bottom Panel glued
I let the frame dry overnight and popped it out of the jig. The stop blocks and finger blocks were removed and the bottom panel is aligned in the jig. Next, I put the frame on the bottom panel and trace around it leaving it a little proud. Then I cut the excess. I also mark the nose, tail and ribs. Next comes the gorilla glue and then the frame is re-installed. I use a combination of weight and clamps to get a snug fit and maximum contact. This will dry overnight.
