Body Construction

I first glue the 1/4" carbon square tube chest cross brace into the chest plate. I locate the hole locations for the end of these tubes on the sides (ply doublers) and drill a 1/4" hole. I square up this hole for the tube with a knife.

The legs are 18" long and their parts are separated from the sides and top plate prior to building the body.

I build the body upside down on a flat table. The top plate is laid on the table and sides are glued to the top plate and chest plate. The chest plate is parallel and 6 inches from the top plate.
