June 4th 1998:
Very productive session. Having spent some considerable time on the model and plans, we now have decided how to go about the construction for real. We are going to cut, bend and weld the steel chair into forming a chassis for the robot. We have a very hefty base available to us which will provide more weight and strength. 

Each cut and bend has to be carefully thought out and measured or we could end up back at the drawing board. The scale of the Panda fits in rather nicely with the metal work we have.
