His latest video shows me how you connect angled pieces of wood. I had no idea. Awesome videos!

Hello together,
finally there is space again in the cockpit.
The overhead hangs free and the support structure has been removed.

Finally I closed the ceiling frame. I used thin stripes of wood to create a solid surface and laminated it with glass cloth.

I added some more details to the ceiling. It is giving the whole thing much more realism.

Michael I have caught up and watched every video from your project.

Absolutely inspiring!

You have incredible craftsmanship, patience, and attention to detail. You have my upmost respect! Thank you for taking the time to produce the fantastic videos as well. All the best!

Hey Michael,

It's amazing how far you've come in such a short amount of time! I don't know if you've read any old post by Ivar Hestnes, but back in the early days he was a "Man of the Wood" like yourself.

One of Ivar's old posts:

http://www.cockpitbuilders.com/community/index.php?topic=129.msg573#msg573

He had an amazing flight simulator in the early years, when the rest of us were just getting started and he really inspired a lot of us old timers. Plus, I've haven't seen anyone come close to his woodworking abilities in that regard...at least until now! What you're doing is certainly Ivar quality and like him, shows the amount of patience a person can have when they're totally dedicated to something they love...like woodworking.

Plus, I am very happy to see you posting the build videos as well, which are just as good as your entire simulator project. Please keep going and posting updates...

John

PS I have a request, please make a bloopers video when your project is all done, as I am guessing you have some funny ones.  :idiot:

Thanks to you all. I really haven't thought about bloopers until now. I always remove the video footage after the editing to get my disk space back. When there are funny moments I tried to integrate them into the videos. But I will look out for mistakes that might be funny for you in a later best of video.

In preparation of building my own panels I started a new side project. I'm building my own CNC router.

Hey Michael,

That's actually great news!

I hope you do it in the same manner as your sim project, using videos that explain everything in the simplest details. Please do this for the guys who know absolutely zero about CNC machines...like me. Explain things like which bits to use and when, feed rates, router usage, materials used, keeping everything held down when CNC'ing, your choice of CNC hardware /software and so on.

My main point is, you're very good at narrating/making videos and you have a great knack for making the topic easy to understand... :idiot:

Best Regards,

John

Yes, I will explain it as detailed as I did in my cockpit videos. I'm also completely new to the cnc topic. So I will have to find a good solution for making panels and show you the results.

Just a though Michael,

Most builders use a laser for making panels, it's a lot quicker and you can do a better job engraving with a laser that you can with a CNC.
I have a CNC and a 60 watt Laser and the combination of both means you can cut the acrylic and then machine out the back for backlighting with the CNC. I also have a small lathe, bandsaw and circular saw.

Personally I like the flexibility I get with the equipment I've got, but I would still like a machine shop like yours!  8)

Joe.

Do you switch between Laser and router on the same machine?

No they are two separate machines. I'm pretty sure you can't get a machine that has both capabilities. A CNC machine makes a lot of mess as it cuts through the material you're working on, whereas a laser only produces fumes as it cuts.
Another thing is that the Laser doesn't have a Z axis, it only works in the X and Y planes.

I stand corrected David, BUT..... have you seen the price of that machine.  8)
You could buy a laser, CNC, Mill, and 3D printer for less than they want for it, I know which I would prefer.  :2cw: :idiot:
