The scaffolding of a complete lattice L of finite length was introduced by Rudolf Wille in 1976 as a relative subsemilattice of L that can be constructed using subdirect decomposition. The lattice is uniquely defined by its scaffolding and can be reconstructed from it. Using bonds, we demonstrate how the scaffolding can be constructed from a given formal context and thereby extend the notion of the scaffolding to doubly founded lattices. Further, we explain the creation of a suitable graphical representation of the scaffolding from the context.
