No need to discount your contributions and put a do not read warning!!

I notice that I majored in mathematics, and I see warren talking about trigonometry, patrick, you....did anyone else major in math? I'm the only one who doesn't remember much of trigonemtry - I'd have to refresh for trigonometric substitution, too (since none of that is remotely related to my job).

I'd still rely on spatial skills in the shop to figure this out, though, because of the safety factor. I'd estimate at this point that this plane is going to take about 80 hours to make, so I don't want to re-do parts.

At any rate, this is a discussion about actually making something. It won't satisfy the furniture mongers, but a friend of mine has something to say about people who want you to make what they want to see you make.
