Exodus 26:18-19 - Tabernacle Boards - South Side of the Tent

Exodus 26:18-19

18 And thou shalt make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards on the south side southward.
‎18 ‏וְעָשִׂ֥יתָ אֶת־הַקְּרָשִׁ֖ים לַמִּשְׁכָּ֑ן עֶשְׂרִ֣ים קֶ֔רֶשׁ לִפְאַ֖ת נֶ֥גְבָּה תֵימָֽנָה׃




19 And thou shalt make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.
‎19 ‏וְאַרְבָּעִים֙ אַדְנֵי־כֶ֔סֶף תַּעֲשֶׂ֕ה תַּ֖חַת עֶשְׂרִ֣ים הַקָּ֑רֶשׁ שְׁנֵ֨י אֲדָנִ֜ים תַּֽחַת־הַקֶּ֤רֶשׁ הָאֶחָד֙ לִשְׁתֵּ֣י יְדֹתָ֔יו וּשְׁנֵ֧י אֲדָנִ֛ים תַּֽחַת־הַקֶּ֥רֶשׁ הָאֶחָ֖ד לִשְׁתֵּ֥י יְדֹתָֽיו׃
And thou shalt make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards...

...two sockets under one board for his two tenons...

...and two sockets under another board for his two tenons... 

Here is a close-up view of the board being put in its sockets... 
Each of the two sockets was about 0.75 cubits in length....

 The length of the two silver sockets was equal to the length of the board - 1.5 cubits...

 And the resulting adjacent boards in the sockets would fit together perfectly...

 Here is a close-up view of the tenons of every adjacent board of the side...

And here is the result... 

And here are all boards of the South Side of the Tent of the Mishkan....
