Re: Building a Yurt

I'm finishing up the 36 slot crown today I hope. I'll have an extra crown with 32 slots I guess. Wonder if I could sell it?

Re: Building a Yurt

OOOOh Yeah!! The wall is done. I'm building a door frame this afternoon. Then I'll check out how the crown and rafters work. I built a 32 slot wheel when I think I should have built a 36 Slot. ...
