Track levels all coming together nicely. The partly assembled folding legs in the background (45mm x 18mm timber)

Taking note of all the levels required. I'll make 12mm wide ply off-cut supports at 5mm height intervals.

All glued and dried properly and having drawn around it to locate the glue points of the piers on the base, the frame can now be lifted off and hung safely out of the way on the nearest IKEA wall lamp while the piers can be fixed in place.

It is interesting to compare different construction techniques. I also used narrow plywood trackbeds for my rabbit warren, but kept them as loose separate pieces right through the final alignment and elevation checks. I only glued them together as each was installed in its correct place on pillars on the layout. Pros and cons for both approaches.
