My vote is that the Piojo, if and when it becomes a real project, is absolutely the right candidate for tab and slot construction (if it has to be built in wood). And no round, laminated, or complicated "fiddly bits" should be necessary whatsoever. If a builder wants to add rounded laminated tip bows, and a leather stitched interior, then he or she can do that, but it's totally optional. A Piojo airframe should be able to be put together in a month or so using T-88 glue, and using Oratex the covering would take about a weekend. Another month MAX of engine mounting, misc. systems and control runs, fuel tank,etc. and you should be able to start taxi testing.
