At last, all boards done, all seem to function properly.

Here is an overview of all boards for this project:

There was no way to place all circuitry for multiplexor on a single board, so I decided to extend it by one small board. As T-buffers occupy only half of this board, I placed some input capability. So the small board contains group of 4 tri-state buffers with common enable, which are enabling first nybble (most significant one) to the bus.

On the big board there are three groups of four tri-state buffers with common enable. Also two small circuits -- one is group of four invertors, which invert bus value. They are needed because t-buffers have inverted output.

Also there are four 2-NAND gates which are part of decoder.

Below the two boards of multiplexor connected together:
