Basically all out of 19x34mm batten. The main bit is 1m long x 10" tall, the side wings 12" x 10" tall. All held together with glue and 3/4" screws and connected by cheap 38mm hinges from B&Q. These strangely come with 8 screws per hinge rather than the required four. But then at least two are so badly cast that they fall through the holes... quality no object obviously.
The whole sits on a 29-30" high exhibition table taking the bottom of the baseboard to 39"+ . Plus the depth of the board at my standard 3" lifts the track level to not much less than it would be on trestle and a great saving on weight and moving.
