My version of the EAA standard work table, thinner plywood top but thicker timber frame, using up what I had lying around but now I can get on and dimple the skin for the vertical stabilizer. The dimple frame sits in a slot and can be removed and replaced by a block if its not needed. I've now put some wheels on it and glued an old cotton sheet to the top to minimize scratching when I move the bigger skins around.

I'm at my friends place in Lena, IL prior to Oshkosh. Today we flew to Prairie du Chien Wisconsin for dinner. Great 25 minute flight with excellent food right across the street from the airport. My plane in the foreground and my friend, Ron Moring's, RV8A in the background. Flew south down the river when we left. Gorgeous evening.
