All the wires coming from the junction boards were trimmed to the length where they would meet the hole where they would be soldered. Tasks were being broken into small steps that could be done to all the modules. They were broken up by which tool I was using. If I needed to cut wires, I cut all the wires. If the wires needed to be stripped, I stripped all the wires. When the exposed wires needed to be tinned, I used the soldering iron on all the wires.

Connecting the wires from the junction boards to the controller meant that the whole project needed to be rotated to feed wires from behind and solder to the front. To make the rotations less stressful, a spinning spice rack was placed underneath.

Every wire from the junction boards was landed on the Arduino prototyping board. Hopefully, they are soldered well and in the correct places so rework, and troubleshooting will be a short task. This took several hours and was interrupted by a nap.
