a few niggles to resolve but basically i'm happy with this.  panels
are in.  i'm amazed that cutting a 1mm chamfer into 1.5mm 3-ply bamboo
plywood works as well as it does.  it's one of those things where you
think, "hmm that might work", then the design phase stretches out to
an entire year and it's still not been confirmed - finally the panels
arrive, it's "eek!" for a couple of months because the preliminary
channels don't fit the panels properly, then "eek!" again because it
takes two iterations (of a week each) to reprint almost 100% of the
[35] parts, "eek!" some more when you've only ordered 8 panels and
there's only one spare left, and finally "whewwwww" when it all fits
