In the application, I said we can make a dome anywhere between 12' and 24' diameter. Kinda waiting on a curator to read the application to see how much space we can get.

Yes, it'd be a simple metal one made from EMT. We'll want to fix up the bandsaw or get a horizontal one which is pretty cheap. Beyond that, we've got a sledge to fab the ends of rods and a drill press for holes.

Then some tarps and vinyl glue to build a skin, and we'll have a structure to fill with tea!
