Starting to Look Like a Dome

I built what I could before I needed to cut more struts.

The best advice I can give is to make the first course of triangles fit as tight as possible.  Any errors at the bottom become bigger errors as you go higher.  I am considering tearing the whole thing down and fitting everything closer.  We'll see.

Here I have loaded several struts onto my saw table with a temporary stopper.  I set my radial saw bevel at 12.5 degrees and used it to cut the first of many angles on each end.

Again, painting each length makes life a lot easier.
