I have a few questions as I've been looking threw some plans for my
first attempt, along with any other tid bits, or places I could visit
to get my knowledge base up to par before I start.
First off, what is the best way to transfer from plans to wood?
Something like trace paper, then lay it on top of the balsa/or ply?
Photo copy? What are the best methods for that.
Also, I have a pretty decent wood shop, but I'm courious to the light
balsa and how to go about cutting it. I would think a bandsaw would
be to aggressive on it, a scroll saw my be a tad easier on it, but
still could see it catching and breaking the balsa. So it just a good
sharp knife the best way to go. (I'm thinking of when I will be
cutting the ribs for the wing). I know my table saw and band saw
would be best on the plywood.
Thanks in advance, as I'm just trying to pave the way before I start
making saw dust.
