That is one solid khana. Totally worth the extra expense and effort. I like it.

The yesterday's section enlarged and another one started. Using better, thicker rawhide.

Tying continued today. Two of the middle parts done. One of the end parts started.
Improved my technology and tools, so my hands are not all chewed up by pulling the rawhide and such. In short: yesterday I invented a plate with hole. Today I invented a stick. Progress goes forward!

Perhaps you'd consider giving an explanation of how you tied up the khana, for the yurt forum archives?

We made a full photo documentation of rawhide khana tying today, step by step. I'll post it later.
We finished one of the end parts and the last part only needs the shortened ending laths added. Other than that, khana is finally done. We'll be away for a day or two, hope to finish khana and door frame by the weekend.

The middle parts on the yurt deck.


Both parts placed together, checking if the free-end lath counts fit each other.


Finished end part.

All khana sections are complete. Today we connected them together and tried if we can make the thing into a circle. It works! We may have to add couple laths yet, as it seems to be a bit shorter than we wanted, but we'll see more tomorrrow at daylight again.

Glad you like it. We added four more laths today, which should give the length we needed. I hope to complete the door frame tomorrow.
