After the glue dries and the clamps are removed,
the final result is quite impressive and extremely sturdy.
The many connections between the pieces make for a very solid
structure, even though it is made of ordinary cardboard and the
design is very light and open.
It took roughly fifteen people about three hours to cut and
assemble the parts. When complete, it looks very cool and
hangs nicely with no distortion. If you would like to make
your own copy of this design, the template is here
, scaled to fit on a
16-by-32 inch rectangle of cardboard.
Thank you to everyone who helped and
for inviting me to visit.
