Details: Sources include the likes of "a restricted Czarist-era military building on a distant Baltic coast," "a time-worn camping shed," or the "decaying cafeteria terrace of the 1920's Tallinn Hippodrome." Markings on packing remnants are retained. Wood is cleaned and match to pieces, each of which comes numbered and with its provenance story.
