Day 1 at Atelier Nord, My firend Marc's workshop. He was too kind to spend the weekends with us trying to build our Lifesize Death Star panels.

My friend Elie is seen here getting th ewood ready for cutting.

14 panels of 8 feet high will be needes to make the main entrance of the Diorama Workshop.

Detail Templates are cut in order to start production of all the needed pieces.

Elie checks the measurements of the detail pieces.

The bottom and top of each panel has these vent like shapes.

It took forever to cut them all. I would NEVER have been able to do this at home in my basement.

Stacked details for the vertical vents.

And how they fit on top of the main wall unit.

This shape might seem very familiar to all of you :)

The trick is to apply glue to the wood before nailing. It helps bond the pieces much tighter, almost melding them into one piece.

Here I am carefully aligning the Neon detail onto the wall unit.
