If this is the wrong section, please move. So this is the  "Opera" set. The biggest they have. Cost, $ 400. But when I ordered back in November, I got free shipping. Which I guess is substantial. As you can see in the first pic, big box has a bunch of smaller boxes. Each smaller box has LOTS of parts. This first piece will be the center section. More to come......harv

Harv I assume that is particle board,

Use Tightbond II white glue and tape together the parts overnight.

I bet that 401 loctite is a gel or something hard to get a hold of.

Ok first installment.  1 corner section.  Everything fits very well so far. Very snug. I'm using my thick CA for this. I need a new bottle anyway. Total of 13 pieces. Side sections then top and bottom.....harv

What is so different about the Loctite 401 as opposed to other superglues? That price is mentally aberrant.

The sides , floor and top are 9 mm thick. As far as assembling it , it's been a nice pause in plastic ! There are 4 of the corner pieces.....
