I stopped on my way home last night to buy some pine for my orrery base and top. I jointed the edges and glued it up too. Then I held the drawing up to the panel and realized that it’s about one inch too narrow.


So much for eyeballing measurements. I should really read the directions more. On the plus side, I cut some other materials to size like shafts and whatnot although I’m a bit afraid to check them against the drawings.
