Thanks - the only thing I am not totally clear on is the bead and cove. You made the 1/4" edges curved so they fit tightly around the curved ribs? You then had to sand the surface, I assume?

I am really liking this construction technique. I have my CNC machine that could cut the ribs - and you used jigsaw joints to join them together, like I did on CarBEN. Nice job!
