I’ve looked on a couple of websites that cut wood. Who’d have thought that a basic piece of plywood (9mm 1.25mx0.5m, plus enough 1×1 (25x25mm) wood to edge and provide 4 lateral batons could both be so difficult and expensive to find. Now, I must admit, I’m not really sure what I’m buying, and I haven’t looked locally. Surely, places like Homebase and B&Q are worth looking at – I wonder if there are any other places that I could look.
I can see a trip to local wood emporiums coming on sometime in the near future. I’m not going to spend that much, unless I absolutely have to.

There are many skills that I need to develop, and the whole point of this layout is that I learn from my mistakes.
The baseboard is the starting point. Let’s see how it goes from here.
