What did I learn? Profile and Section System

- constructed with the ‘notch’ system - plywood pieces pried out of an A4-sized sheet - width of plywood corresponds to width of notch - notches that are wider than the plywood make loose connections - some notches appear to have ‘teeth’ that lock pieces together.

Many interlocking notches are of equal depth, but some are not

Diagonal notches require tight fittings so as to hold the corresponding piece in place
