Rib tops tied off
It was at this point I notice a few, superficial mistakes made. To prevent the braces from excessively marking the soft cedar, I had cut some scrap cardboard to place over the rib. I ended up using a box that had blue ink on the face and some of this colour bled into the wet cedar. So a few ribs have a weird blue tinge to them. Also, I made a few mistakes by marking the bending point on some rib on the wrong face, so now there are some permanent ink marks these ribs too. These blemishes should easily come off with sanding.
Blue dye from cardboard; ink mark from initial marking
In the meantime, the cedar sheathing is soaking, so if all goes well, the final challenging part of inserting the ribs & sheathing will be over soon.
