Woo Hoo! I bought my first 400' of EMT. I'll need another 490' or so still. The neat part is that they sell red and blue EMT as well as the silver. So I purchased all the material needed for my C struts, and they are all fire alarm red :D I'm cutting as we speak! Edit: also, it seemed like a good bu...

If it will be an installation I would go with metal or wood, something ridged. Are you afraid the wind would tear the fabric? I think you would be better off using plywood, or a press board or something as the walls instead, unless you want to have a light under it. There is a stretchy fabric that I...

Some people smoke hand rolled, with no filters. I know I did for a long time. I never worried much about tossing those on the ground, you can step on it and rotate your foot and it's already broken down!

I built a model this weekend out of straws! It should serve as a key when laying out the actual deal, and it helped me get a better visual of the dome and the process. For some reason I was thinking just doing 3/8 of a 3V would be cool, but now I can clearly see 5/8 is the way to go. If only it wasn...

You might want to look for PVC or other similar stuff that you could tie down to the roof of your car. Space hasn't been an issue so much for me as the group I go with usually rents a moving van. My project for 2005 was a full sized pool table. It kicked ass!

Wooo Hooooo! OK, I sold my old car and now have the scratch to buy my dome supplies. I used the dome calculator over at dessert domes to spec out an 11.5' radius 3V dome.

The fact that BM is held out in the middle of the desert, requiring you to bring your weeks worth of food and water with you goes a long way to prevent the gawkers.

I saw a dome with a tramp as the upper platform. It looked comfy to lounge in, but I'd be afraid of some idiot jumping off! Btw, I'm planning on building either an 8.5', 2v or 11.5', 3v dome for 2006. I think the decision on the size will largely be a $$ issue. Although I was excited to find a local...
