Hmm, looks good to me. What dimension did you get wrong?

It turned out an egg-ish shape. I will be building a small one this weekend.

Ahh I see. Well, then you are fortunate to have learned something. Next time, you will do it differently. That's half the fun!

Here's an easy way. Get the tarp laid out, and pick a focal point of the yurt. Drive a stake through the tarp that has a nail in the top. Or have a friend hold the dumb end of a tape at the focal point. Draw the footprint of the yurt on the tarp with a magic marker. Fill in the circle with bales and wrap them.

Build your platform letting the plywood run wild. Find the focal point again and drive a nail. This go round accurately draw your yurts perimeter on the plywood with tape and pencil or marker. Cut to shape. In essence that's basically how I cut the 2x6 boards of my

yurt platform

. Voila! Perfect circle.

Just try not to stub your toes on that stake...
