Adding the Panels

I started attaching the backscene panels this morning. Here’s the first panel being clamped:

The process has been fairly straightforward, except the baseboard wasn’t perfectly square, causing a slight lean. It is imperceptible to the casual observer, but caused a bit of an issue when connecting the left side panel. I broke up some small bits of wood, stuffed the gap with a few splinters, and applied copious amounts of wood glue. It is currently being “clamped” with painters tape until the glue is set:

Once set, I will use some plastic wood filler to smooth it out. Otherwise, the whole thing is coming together nicely.
