Here's How We Are Building Our Nieuport 11s, Page 1 -- the Beginnings

Ralph used his nail gun to tack the table together. Then Wyman and John evened off all parts and drilled holes and put in 3/8" lag bolts to fasten everything securely. After that, Ralph used his power planer to even off the top.
