Task: Build the field

Today we started the task of building the field, which we received <<<<<<< HEAD for free thanks to DISD and their generous donation which we talked about in this post The first task was to assemble the balancing stones and the cryptoboxes, which Charlotte, Austin, Karina and I worked on inside. While building the field we ran into a few difficulties, the first of which was that when I was making the balancing stone I accidentally had the cover plate on backwards, which ======= for free thanks to DISD and their generous donation which we talked about in this post The first task was to assemble the balancing stones and the cryptoboxes.

While building the field we ran into a few difficulties, the first of which was that when I was making the balancing stone I accidentally had on the cover plate on backwards, which >>>>>>> 0d48e7551ba5a727b255f3155431b4e1fc747545 meant that it was impossible to place the screw through the center, I only discovered this after around 15 to 20 minutes of trying to get the screw to go through but,after successfully building one and learning how to rivet the boards together it was much easier to make the last three. After completing the balancing stones and cryptoboxes We all moved outside to set up the edge of the field and place down all of the tiles. We make a mistake in not placing the plastic tarp down before linking all the tiles leading, to us all lifting the mat of tiles above our heads to place the tarp underneath. As you can see in the image below In total it took us most of practice to finish making all of the field elements and attaching all of the tiles outside, but we are not finished yet. We still have to set up the field border and attach the field elements to the field so keep on the look out for a part II for building the field! Below is a time lapse video of us building the field elements.
