For this step, over 20 people volunteered their time throughout about 3 weeks working to prepare each individual string to hang each bottle. Each string was labeled and cut to a specific length per the length denoted by the table. A washer was tied to one end of the string so a bottle cap with a hole drilled in it could be hung from the string. This step takes many hours and is rather tedious. Each individual was given 51 string lengths to cut in one sitting (the number of bottles in one column of the structure). Doing it with other people makes this step in the process much more enjoyable.
