The base comes together

Like an oversized puzzle, the CNC-routed plywood pieces come together during the evening prior to the big event.  The pieces were all cut on the CNC table, cleaned up with a hand router to ensure there was no burring and instead carry a rounded edge, and subsequently pinned and glued in place in order to offer the greatest amount of rigidity.  It is quite fulfilling to see the design emerge as a real, full scale piece relative to the scale model right beside the finished product.
