Part 10: Fixing the curved bracing
Once the curved braces have been cut (all slightly over length at this stage), align them on the framework above position and mark where they need to be cut.
Then cut them and fix them in place.

Part 11: Marking and cutting the wall panels
Even though the dimensions and measurements are given in the plan drawings for each and every plywood wall panel, it is probably best to use the front and rear wall-frames as patterns to mark the panels for cutting.
It is not so important with the side panels, as they are rectangular shapes and can easily be marked off the plans.
To mark the front (or rear) plywood panels for cutting, place the appropriate panels in position on an even surface (refer to the 'front/rear wall sheet plan' for plywood panel size and placement).
Lay the front (or rear) frame on top of the plywood panels.
Mark around the outside of the frame (onto the plywood) with a pencil and also mark the doorway/window.
Take the frame off the plywood.
Now mark another couple of lines, in 2 1/4" (63mm) from the side lines. These will now become the cutting lines.
Also make another pencil line an inch (25mm) in from the door (or window) line, all the way around. That will also become the cutting line.
Then place the plywood panels on saw-horses or a cutting table, and cut.
