The cement risers were made by coating sonotube cylinders and plywood circles with ready-mixed concrete patch. Once dry, a layer of joint compound was added on the tops as a variegated color treatment.
The stacked-circle plinth was built from the same framework as the cement risers, with sonotube and plywood. Birch plywood faces were cut, and the sides were coated with birch veneer.
A bowtie-shaped birch riser was made to match.
As a second-phase treatment, both the bowtie riser and circle plinth were coated with joint compound for a white, textured look.
