So, I have been very lazy on this project and haven't really made much progress recently. Today I did a couple things. First was to solve the issue with getting the bottom planking to press into the concaves on the frame. Second was to setup the rocker table an get an approximate setup.
Frame setup on the rocker table:
Solution to the "how do I press in the tail concaves?" question:
Next up is to level out all the cross bars on the frame and then reset it to the frame. Then re level the cross bars and then reset it to the frame -- repeat until all cross bars are level and it fits the frame nicely.
