Second Dome

May 25, 2020

Today my wife and I finished assembling the frame for the second dome.

The frame is assembled layer by layer, becoming stronger and stronger as you reach the top.

After making some final tweaks to the base we got started on the frame.

Once it’s completely assembled, it’s very rigid. However the galvanized steel tubes aren’t especially thick, so they will bend under my weight if I’m not careful.

We finished up the structure and put the door frame in before calling it a day.

Usually I just work directly off my computer in the studio, but it will be nice to have a cut list prepared in advance.

I also put together a cut sheet and schematic for the fourth wall.
