Roof Stringers

Here are the roof stringers glued into place. I don't think this is how the plans specify
that the stringers be glued. I think the rear of the stringers (which are glued to station 4)
are supposed to go on top of station 4, rather than glued into notches cut into station 4.
Also, the plans show the stringers to be 24 mm tall, while the notches in station 3
are only supposed to be 12 mm deep. I made my stringers 18 mm tall,
and my notches 18 mm deep, so my roof is actually going to be flat.

Total Time: 3.5 hrs.
