Spent about an hour tonight roughing out the slots in the verticals and ribs...haven't started on the upper, lower or center rings yet.
Tomorrow, I hope to start on the rest of the slots and break out the router. I also need to find a sheet of quarter inch MDF for one of the "ribs". I hate to buy a whole sheet for that one little piece...but...we'll see.
Once I'm done cutting everything up, it'll be time for rough assembly, sanding, filing and testing everything out before final assembly.
