I loved the procress and am super pumped that this actually worked!

  • Terrific presentation and reuse of common materials. If you were to build another dome would you skip the rivets and just use nuts, washers and bolts? On exceptionally cold nights you can light a candle and place it in the middle to gently warm the air. Wishing you and your team a great week.

  • Great! Use paraffin / kerosene (Kerosin) to lubricate the cutting line for the glass cutter. It will make the cut easier and more precise. Old trick of the trade :-)

  • The 3 strut lengths wouldnt produce a flat base dome but you solved it by adding the kneewall..nice job. The only thing i`d do differently is put the bolts in from the outside (the exposed threads could be a potential hazard for kids etc) and use a rubber washer between the glass and the steel washer to allow for the metal expansion/contraction in very cold or very hot weather.

  • I love how you showed you had to change out the rivets. Are there any LED light strips you can upcycle into it? I bet it would look great lit up at night. Not sure if the yard/garden type that charge during the day would make enough light.

  • Ehrliche Frage wie bekommt man ne SawStop denn nach Deutschland wenn man eine will. Gibt's da auch 240V Versionen? Denke die Sägeblätter mit nem Zollloch sollte man gut bekommen. Und ja ich weiss Festool hat nun auch ne kleine im Angebot.

  • As a professional metalworker I can say, never ever drill sheet metal like this unless you want your pillar drill to turn into a blender and chew-up your hands. As a twist drill breaks though the far-side of a thin sheet of metal, (if it isn't clamped-down) it will cause it to ride up the drill-bit and then start rotating at 1000 rpm. If your flesh is in the way of this, the results are very messy.

    • A punch is a much safer alternative! There is vast array of punching options available, from hand held units to bench mounted models and of course powered models. I love Laura’s projects though, especially the “oh wow!” facial expression!

  • Is that special high-temp hot glue? I have had projects come apart in hot sun when the glue re-melts. How about making a chest-high stand, then cutting out a larger hold in the center so you can stand inside the dome and tend to your plants? Fun project - I never would have thought metal strapping could become rigid enough for this kind of application. Love it Laura!

  • I love this project. Buckminster Fuller is credited with popularizing geodesic domes (and the name), although he did not build the first one. When I was a young boy, Fuller came to give a lecture in Dallas. I remember playing on the large geodesic dome that was set up in his honor.

  • I can tell just by the look in Laura's eyes, that sort of rivet design is definitely the adult version of Lego's. You see the instructions, you understand that it has to work, but really have no idea until you see the final product. That feeling of pride, seeing everything come together is unmistakable!
