I finally got a chance to spend some time working with the tools and got the baseboard assembled. I know it doesn’t sound, or look, like much, but I really wanted to take some care and make sure things were square. So, everything is glued together and then screw secured with #8 x 1.5″ screws. The screw heads are countersunk so that they will easily be covered over by scenery and not interfere. I was also careful to but them far enough out and in places not to interfere with the track. Of course that was going to be unlikely anyway since the track will not be close to the edge.
Next step will be laying out the track-plan on the board, penciling it in, and then cutting away for the recessed track.
