Quick update

The 9 adjustable legs arrived today and I have set out the cuts required to my spare piece of 9mm ply to act as bases for them.

I also cut out 8 x 250mm pillars which were then glued onto the new board (initially using hot glue, but later grab adhesive when the hot glue ran out) and will support the roof of this hidden section, taking nails from above.  This should mean that the lid is sufficiently strong to take some displays – perhaps my digital photo frame on slideshow mode showing images of the layout in progress?

Finally a batch of 128 No.4 x 9mm screws were ordered for the new hinges.
