The T shaped part is my favorite. Some very good ideas!

O.K. a few more... ;)

How I cut them, it was very easy with those sheet metal cutters.

Here I added a few pieces of cavern dwarvenite from earlier dismemberments, plus some GS added.

Another thing I wanted these to do is be fairly modular, so none of my plank foot beds are glued in place. The planks are glued to the beams, but those are separate from the rock bases. I might as well do a few of them because they only fit on certain bases anyway, but as of now the frames just sit on the rock.

Here is another few pictures of the specialty piece in action.

A few more shots to show how it will fit into Cavern floor system.
The 'L' shaped 2x2's only needed minor shaving to fit DF floor tile. Instead of a permanent fill to those missing areas I was going to sculpt a filler then try to mold and cast the 6 I needed, but had some other cavern dwarvenite floor tile pieces I just cut into the other 5. I'll finish the sculpted one but just use in as the 6th.

Here are a few work-in-progress shots of what I'm doing to the raised walkways.

Three sets. I wanted them to look more like a Cavern rather than a mine, so I cut away some pieces and added other flourishes of mineral flows. I didn't want any repeat pieces, but the straight ones were tough to change.

While doing some Green Stuff additions..

Fantastic job, Oldent!

How did you paint the tiles? I normally take the lazy way out with gray craft paint then Secret Weapon Stone Wash, but would like to know how to paint desert-colored tiles! Thanks!
I am not sure how I would do desert color. May be brown shoe polish but I am not sure it would stick :roll:

Glue
I used Gorilla brand super glue.

It worked well on the Orc cages and doors.
