The accuracy requirements and design philosophy of the JCMT reflector structure are briefly reviewed, leading to a steel space-frame with separate reflector panels. The choice of material for the panels is discussed, with particular emphasis on the properties of aluminum honeycomb composites. The development of the manufacturing process and the details of the process are described. Finally, statistics on the results of the manufacturing process are given.
