OK, I have a dumb question. Got my BA parasol today from Easybuilt, and I'm just wondering about the print wood. When I cut the parts out. Should I cut outside and leave the line, cut the line, or cut inside of the line of the print and have a part with no ink left? I'm guessing someone knows what I'm talking about. Thanks so much in advance.

I would probably leave the line until you had all the pieces of the same type and then use sandpaper to make them exactly the same. Pin the wing ribs together, and sand them top and bottom with a sanding block. I'd leave a bit extra on the front and rear of the wing ribs, and trim them to fit into the frame. The outer edges of formers probably should be sanded with a long sanding board after they are assembled.

It's hard to make things consistent if you cut off all the ink before you assemble. Better to leave the ink on, and use sandpaper to make the final outline.

It might be good to make any notches for stringers tight at first. Then, use a thin file to make sure they run straight.

I build some from plans, and all these precautions go double doing that.

Enjoy your kit

I cut on the outside of the line and touch it up with 180 grit paper to get rid of the black marks.

I've built many printwood kits and that seems to work the best for me.
