Why is it that authorities never explained and demonstrated exactly how Oswald made the bag?

Because, he did a mighty good job considering how well that bag endured the work and the abuse, and how well it remained intact despite being just shipping paper and tape.

If you were handed a roll of shipping paper and tape and told to make a bag, what would you do? What steps would you take?

And remember: he had no training in bag-making. There is no reason to think he ever gave it a moment's thought. Have you?

But, let's think about it.

Obviously, the fewer the pieces the better, since every junction comprises a potential weak spot.  Also, the whole process has to be fast because he's not supposed to be there; somebody could see him; and he doesn't want to get caught.

So, let's presume that he started by just making a tube.

And then to close it at one end, I presume that he would just fold it over. That's what I would do.

So, let's compare it to Montgomery's bag.

I went by Tony Fratinit's assumption that Montgomery had a stick inside the bag. So, I had a stick inside my bag. You see that his bag was not folded over like mine, rather it had a very nifty flat bottom, like a real bag. How did Oswald do that, and how did he know how to do it? And how exactly did he do it? Why haven't authorities taken us through it step by step, what Oswald did?

You see all the visible tape on my bag. That's what it took to secure it. And remember that my goal was to use the fewest number of pieces. He must have had more pieces since he's got that flat bottom. So, how is it secured? Was all the tape on the other side? But there wasn't much tape there either. There was the remant of just one strip.

But, now here's the coup d'grace. Now, I have leaned the bag towards the camera to create the pyramidal effect. And believe me, I am leaning it quite a lot. And I am forcing myself to do it. It's uncomfortable to do it. It feels unnatural. Recall I mentioned that we all have proprioception or position sense. It tells what vertical is without looking, and there's a strong instinct to want to hold the stick and the bag vertical. But, I suppressed that instinct and leaned the bag towards the camera. I'm sure I'm leaning it more than Montgomery was because he wasn't trying to overcome his proprioception, and I was.

And there is not much pyramidal effect from the leaning. Maybe technically there is a little if you took a ruler to it, but it is nothing compared to what we see on him.

His is too much. It is too exaggerated. And this experiment confirms it.
