Ok....getting there with the endforms, but still some things to figure out. I'm building a Guillemot, and bought the kit. Endforms are included as well as the patterns for the inner stems. I was assuming that the inner stems would just fit on top of the endform, but when I try to fit it, it doesn't match the shape. However, if you hold the inner stem right next to the endform, the shapes match.
So, I'm thinking the endform was manufactured to allow the builder to choose to use the inner stem or to use the old-fashioned finger joints. Since I'm using inner stems, I'll need to trace the shape of the inner stem on to the endform and sand or saw away the excess.
Am I right about this? I'd really rather not cut at the endforms if I'm not supposed to!
Thanks again for your help with this.
