You may wonder why this trimming is necessary. Like a puzzle, all of the pieces need to fit together. If this trimming were not performed, then the parlor would not fit properly during assembly. Trust me on this!
Note: The next time you make a crabpot, when you are comfortable with what the parlor looks like, you can skip all this trimming and simply cut the wire to fit directly from the roll. The trimming is necessary only because I didn't want to confuse the novice with "cutting on the half-mesh" and "cutting a full-mesh in half," which have two entirely different meanings.
