I thought i would add some photos of the custom elevator. Post below if you have any questions or comments. Or list some building technique you would like to see.

Earlier "how-to" build thread is here http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1714035

Could you tell us what the lamination is?
Looks like a layer of balsa or basswood/spruce on the inside, then some carbon (.007 or .014?), then multiple layers of 1/16" balsa?
Just to give some reference, are the "ribs" 1/4" thick or more?

The laminations are all 1/32" balsa with www.hobby-lobby.com carbon fiber 0.5mm x 10mm strips.
