There are basically two types of wing ribs,
the Compression Rib and a Standard Rib. 
The Compression Rib is built with Mahogany sides
like the one that Chuck is holding above.

I immediately started cutting out all the pieces for the bottom wing ribs. Glued them together then started making the jig for the top ribs. When all the ribs were finished I set them aside.
