Exodus 26:29 - Gold Plating the parts of the Tent of the Mishkan - Part 1

I've been asked to clarify the details of the golden overlay of the boards (and other parts) of the Tent of the Tabernacle, so here it is... in two parts...

Exodus 26:29

29 And thou shalt overlay the boards with gold, and make their rings of gold for places for the bars: and thou shalt overlay the bars with gold.
‎29 ‏וְֽאֶת־הַקְּרָשִׁ֞ים תְּצַפֶּ֣ה זָהָ֗ב וְאֶת־טַבְּעֹֽתֵיהֶם֙ תַּעֲשֶׂ֣ה זָהָ֔ב בָּתִּ֖ים לַבְּרִיחִ֑ם וְצִפִּיתָ֥ אֶת־הַבְּרִיחִ֖ם זָהָֽב׃
(Please click on the picture to better see all details)

And thou shalt overlay the boards with gold...


...and make their rings of gold for places for the bars...

...and thou shalt overlay the bars with gold....

Here is a close-up that captures all details of this verse...
(notice the corner board rings for the bars)

And this is a close-up on the middle-bottom part of the Northern Wall of the Tent...

And when the boards were put into proper position, they would look like this...

And here is another close-up on the Northern Wall of the Tent...


In my next post I'll explain in much details why the boards would look like this, and not the other way around.
