square, as per the drawings, but slightly larger as i was using
I think I will probably try the "hollow" route next time.
Trying to cut through 2 1/2 to 3 inches of wood is a real
pain; neither my circular saw or my table saw will do it.
I think a single stick of wood would be be OK for a short mast,
maybe 10 feet long. For comparison, the AF3 mast is 21 1/2 feet.
