You can follow my assembly steps on the forum post.
This video goes from 22:14-0:58 hours = 164 minutes, here compressed into 200 seconds, so each minute of video = 49:12 minutes of assembly.
0:00-0:07 = unpacking the boxes
0:07-0:19 = assembling the base and cradle
0:20-0:29 = assembling the camera mounts
0:29, realize that one side of the cradle falls over because one of the base railings is slightly off of square
0:29-0:58 = switching the cradle parts around to see if they fit more snugly in a different arrangement, then getting a piece of cardboard to stuff between the cradle clamp and base railing so that the cradle stays put
0:58-1:13 = unpacking and assembling the platen
1:15-1:27 = assembling the light stand
1:27-1:43 = assembling the light electronics and attaching to light stand
1:43-1:57 = unpacking the rest of the electronics and turning on the lights (if the frame were a bit larger you'd see me put sunglasses on for the initial lighting based on warnings from my brother)
1:57-2:03 = assembling camera electronics
2:03-2:18 = putting CHDK on the second camera (this time lapse is taken with CHDK running on the first camera, both Canon A495)
2:18-2:39 = testing remote triggering of camera, doesn't work this time, read more about CHDK and book scanner forum posts, still no luck
2:39-2:49 = first book scanning!
2:49-2:58 = make and test a cardboard face for the camera so that the camera's shiny body doesn't appear as a reflection in the photo it takes (later I might use black cloth for this)
2:58-3:04 = more book scanning
3:04-3:20 = image processing and forum posting
