Re: Is building balsa wood airplane models "woodworking?" I hope so.

That is super cool! and really brings back some memories.....although I never built anything quite that complicated.

Larry, I used to wonder about the same thing,"Are the unusual things I build really woodworking?"

The guy and gals here all said "YES" If you get a moment check my web site for some of my projects.

 

Check my website for many more like it

Of course it's woodworking! Look's really great as is. I'd like to see more of your work like this if you have any. Give your ego a pat on the back for a job well done. (skin or not)

Stay tuned, Bob. 

 

Down in the "Off Topic" Forum shows a project I'm getting ready to do which is making a 1/2" = 1 foot model of a house I designed.  Will be a long one and I plan to post some WIP images as I go.

 

Ordered $78 worth of balsa wood today.
