- Starting at the top of the spine piece, butt the branch pieces together so the V of the two pieces is in the centre of the support. Nail in place and continue assembling the branches down the tree.
- When the end of the spine is reached, draw a line square across the bottom and cut off excess. Cut a piece to brace the bottom of the back at a 90˚ angle.
*Assembly variation - If you are making more than one tree, switch the assembly of the left and right branches on the spine for variety.
