After working with Dad to design and build the rods and brackets for my geodesic hypertext, we began to build the final version over the weekend.
Saturday, it was cold, but the halogen work lamp kept the fingers warm.
We worked all morning Saturday. Dad fabricated and drilled parts. I shaped them and began screwing them together to form the geodesic structure.
Holding the world on my shoulders is a tough job, but someone has to do it :-). I was very pleased when the structure was completed.
The next day, we started wrapping the sphere with Jute. To help the process, we hung half-spheres from the ceiling. Mom helped pick out the coarse string and wrap it around the metal structure
Sunday night, we finished wrapping. The Cat in the hat approves of our efforts.
