I only put boards on the ones separated form the other tiers, for example on the one that will be on top of the glasses, and a board on the bottom tier. WhenI stacke them tier on top of a tier I don't use boards in between.
The Ri should hold it, but you do have to assemble on site, especially using the glasses. Don't know about the basket wave I guess it doesn't matter where you star. The recipe I use for Ri is from wiltons.
