I was so excited about finishing the frame I forgot to think whilst gluing it up. I ended up having to take the top ring off and after I glued the top ring on before I had all of the ribs glued. The slots didn't line up but luckily the glue was only a day old and my dad helped me pull/rip/chisel the top layer off :). No real damage was done so I guess this time I was lucky.
I'll glue all the ribs and side supports first, then put the top pieces on so it will line up.
I really can't believe how stupid I was.....wow....maybe trying to glue the frame after school and 5 hrs of sleep really was a bad idea.
