Wizard's Sanctum Tatebanko - Part 2

In the first part we cut out and made all the various pieces. In this part of the tutorial we make the tatebanko.


Let's start by making the box


Fold with a rulerHere is a folding tip. To fold the straight lines you can use two straight-edges, one under and one over.





Glue box together

Glue together the five pieces that make up the box.







Deepen the colors

Now we will install the curved background. But first you can touch up the colors if you want them brighter. There are some empty spaces too so you can add some more things if you want.





Put a little glue on the back of the background on the left and right edges and insert it into the box.


Add the backdroplooks good


Add beams

Next glue the four arches onto the base of the box.







Add the ring

Curve the long strip into a circle like this and glue it. There is a dashed line on it to show you where to glue it.







Glue ring to roof

Glue the circle into the box. It sticks out the front about a half an inch.







Attach beams to roof

Finish that assembly by gluing the arches to the ring.








The wizards lair is done

Finish it off by folding the table and installing it into the diorama.







And that's it. Your tatebanko is done.
