Western Wall and Corner Boards

Each corner board was made out of two regular boards of the same length, height, thickness and design as the rest of the boards of the tent. These two regular boards were bended into two hollow semi-cylinders and, when connected together, would form one hollow cylinder that would become a corner board. Each such hollow cylindrical corner board would be 10 cubits in height, with outside diameter of 1 cubit, inside diameter of 3/π=0.9549 cubits and thickness of 0.5-(1.5/π)=0.0225 cubits.

Thus, the tent was made out of 48 parts and 50 boards (46 straight boards and 4 curved boards that would form two corner boards)
