MLG Torsional Layups

I am getting ready to do the 30-degree UND cuts for the MLG torsional layups.


I plan to use the cores of paper-towels to roll the strips up so that I can lay them on the MLG in an easier way.


The plans says to perform the layups so that the UND threads are at a 35 degree angle. I am having a hard time to visualize it. If you cut the strips at 30 degrees and you lay them up so that the MLG runs down the middle of the strip, does that not imply that the threads will run at 30 degrees to the MLG? Is the implication to distort the UND strips (basically scrunch them up) so that it will lay at 5 degree higher angle than they were cut?

I plan to procrastinate, but not now....
