Laying Spline

The last CCSB was plywood plains... nothing but flat landscape for miles. I wanted this one to be different, so I thought I would try splines. Nobody around me had done this that I knew of so there was nobody local to turn to for advice. Guess I have to go this one alone.

I took some of the scrap primed 1/8 masonite that I had and cut it into 1 1/2" strips on the table saw. I set a couple of screws into the risers where I wanted them to go and clamped and glued each strip. The next day, I removed the clamps to find a completely rigid roadbed.

While the splines were drying, I finished the walls in the pit and to the exit side.
