By following the pictures are instructions you first take a certain size sheet of plywood (determined by you relating to what size solar panel you want) which will be used as a backboard to lay solar cells which are normally placed to rows across the board.
The cells are then connected to each other with wires that a thread through holes under each cell in the back of the plywood and then reinforced again by another piece of plywood to secure the wires together, a small wood frame is then placed outside the plywood board but is higher than the cells to allow a glass to be put over the top to seal the cells to the backboard.
