We tried a number of ways to skin the bowl but just couldn't seem to get it right. I'm sure this lathe process could work. I've seen it somewhere. But it just wouldn't follow the bowl shape. If it was a nice sunny day we might have spent more time with it. But the rain somehow sapped us of our desire to tinker with it.

  1. there is surprisingly little information online about building curved structures. We looked at Domes etc... but needed a structure that was at a good center of gravity point on the truck frame and that we could remove for transport.

    If we had to do it all over, we would befriend someone with a 3D CAD CNC machine and would have made the initial bowl from styrofoam
