Oh no! I feel your pain, man. I’m not a woodworker, but what I would do since you have a good portion populated is to find a buddy (or local Pinsider) who knows about woodworking to help. You need reinforcements. If that’s not an option, watch as many YouTube videos as you can and make sure you have the right tool for the job.
On a positive note, looking good so far. I’d recommend replacing the disc decals though or that will bug you later down the road. The repro ones are pretty good and will make it look brand new.
Damn I miss my Whirlwind.
