The making of the plywood laths from the plywood board to the connecting the segments into full length members

Making of the of the base plates

Production drawings for the base plates, the plates are made of two layers of 12mm plywood glued and screwed together. Due to symmetry we could use one CNC file and turn one layer upside down to cover the joints.

Assembly and erection
