Post Front clip station buck assembled

I finally got a chance to assemble the station buck for the Miura front clip. As you might guess, it's like trying to assemble a big jigsaw puzzle. After some trial and error, it came together and looks great.







The missing areas like grill, headlight, and vent openings are where hammer forms will go. I'm still working to get the hammer forms shaped/cut.

What I like about it:
  • It's free standing with it's own legs
  • It's lightweight enough that I can slide it around the shop
  • All station intersections easily aligned

In addition, I'm really impressed with the accuracy of going from a CAD model to CNC instructions to cut 1/2" plywood stations. The slots are tight enough to hold stations firmly in place. I used a rubber mallet to tap interlocking stations in place and then a wood screw through the intersections to keep them there.
