I can't start building yet. Me and my dad went to the local wood-store (right word?) and asked if they has birchplywood. They didn't have but the guy there could check if he could order some for me. Gonna go back there on tuesday i think and see.

And right now i am low on money. Gonna spend my remaining cash on an Intel X-25 80gb SSD which costs pretty much actually. I do get around 90$ a month but gotta spend that on clothes and money for my phone aswell. But should be able to work for some money aswell.
Planning to build this on the summer. Still too cold and wet to be outdoors.

Fair deal - you have the wonderful landscape, so live with the weather. (No offence meant)

Yeah, and if i get a hum on the price of birchplywood it makes it easier to plan. Wanna know the total cost of the whole build b4 starting out.

#1 - ask the lumberyard about the measures of a standard sheet. They have to buy by whole sheets and youŽll be charged for what they throw away.
#2 - get a free CAD program and puzzle all the pieces on one sheet. Always allow 3cm from the edges and 2cm between parts. The man at the saw will get by with less, but you show you donŽt want to cause him headache.

We'll see on tuseday how it works out.
Will use Google Sketchup and see if it works.

Looks like a good idea. You can get free test versions of professional programs, but you need to be a trained draftsman to understand them.

... I can recommend Google Sketchup for this precisely.

I have used Sketchup a little b4 so i will stick to that, heh :P

And why so much as 2cm between every part? Why not 1cm or even less?

The carpenter can fit his sharpest blade instead of one thinner. Professional sawblades are not thrown away when blunt - they are sharpened again, and a good man knows his tools.
