To All,

I see this question all the time, WHERE CAN I FIND A WOODEN RIB, OR WOODEN WING SPARS? I have the answer for you...

I'm Certified FAA Airframe Mechanic building wooden wing ribs, spars, etc. for any type of aircraft that utilizes wood. Specializes in J-3 & piper series aircraft, tailorcraft, waco, mostly homebuilt or replica aircraft.

My story & experience. I grew up in a flying family, both parents were pilots, Father was also a commercial pilot and A & P. I joined the military served 8 years as a helicopter mechanic & crewchief, got out, worked as an airframe mechanic in Alaska in my families business. I started a Construction Company and retired after 20 years. I'm 46 years old now and decided to go into the worked I loved, building, repairing & working on airplanes. I combined my experience as a finish carpenter working with wood and as a airframe mechanic and the result is a rare craft, a rare breed as a aviation mechanic that works with wood... I love it. I've helped build many parts and pieces of many types of aircraft. business is good.

So if you have a project Let me do the hard work for you, only need copy of your plans, spec sheets, etc. I will build part, piece or whole, your material or mine. Attention to detail is our specialty. I have a full shop, wood steamer so we can do almost any shape or size. We can work out prices and material to keep your cost down. Let me know what I can do for you.

Sincerely & Happy Building,
Mike Robinson

Good to know that you are continuing the aircraft woodworking art, Mike. There aren't that many artisans of an old craft left.

I'm located in Tacoma Washington. Just moved here in June when I sold out my construction business. I see you have some wood spar wings for sale. Do they need redone? or are they ready to cover?
