Full Frame Assembly!

With big thanks to my buddy Kelvin, I was able to just about finish the wooden frame today. Began by making Mike S.'s sled to make dado cuts into the rings. The bulk of the rest of the day was spent making 1/2" deep dado cuts:

As the cuts were completed, I would do a test fitting. Note that the "B" ring is installed, but the back portion will be cut to allow back-panel access:

And here it is, the full assembly. The back skin is clumsily set behind it, so it's not aligned:

All that's left to do is cut the back of the B ring and trim some of the ribs to size. Then the frame will be DONE!
