The molding is the easy part, making the wood jig was the harder part. To be honest the jig was also easy but I've been doing woodworking for 30yrs.

I drew the airfoil on the ends of 2 boards, rough cut them on a table saw by ripping them at different blade angles close to the airfoil shape. Glued them together and sanded my cuts smooth.

I then made my 4 miter cuts at 9 degrees to give myself a 18 degree Dihedral. Used a sliding power miter saw for this, then glued the 3 pieces together.

MOLDING
Lightly tack the Depron wing to the wood jig, and wrap a thick piece of chair cushion foam with Ace bandages and bake in the oven, 225* for around 40min.
