Weaving strips of aluminum flashing into a Penrose tiling

Straight strips of aluminum flashing folded and woven into a portion of a Penrose tiling.
The weaving above was difficult to do because the folds were not bent to the precise angle and the springy strips resist being bent in the weaving. The strips had to be trimmed from a nominal 1.5" width down to about 1.38" to avoid interferences.

Weaving a Penrose tiling with straight weavers: the concave face.
