2023-07-08 (Sa) KeyRyptex Assembly problem

I installed the keyswitches and keycaps, and it looked very cool. I am glad the keycaps are close together on the sides instead of divided by space and wood rings. I added aluminum tape to the bottom so I could insert the magnets. I straightened some copper wire with an electric drill and cut six segments, one for each panel. To solder them, I had to have the central rings in place, but when I got to the fourth one, I knew I would not finish because I could not solder with everything enclosed.
I cannot see how to solder when I add the last panels

I cut the wood rings so I would not have to remove the wire, plus the rings need updating. I still need a design, but I can work something out. I finished soldering the copper wires, which helped hold the keyswitches securely, and added a diode to each switch. I should test the circuit before I seal up the enclosure, and it will be easier with everything exposed.
Solid wires and diodes installed
