Two days on and all of the hardwood bevels have now been fitted to the aluminium frame. Here's a view of the upper East shell in the workshop. Here the photo is taken looking at the front of the OTA housing. It will accommodate a volume of 20" square and 40" at maximum depth. Note the 12" perspex ruler sitting on the top of the frame for scale.
