Last week I worked on one of the models for the column. After making the model out of cardboard we realized that recreating this out of metal was going to be very complicated so instead we are heading in a different direction. The column will be made out of wood that resembles the 3D photo on the updated proposal. This week Leslie and I have been working on a 1/5 metal scale model of the structure. All the parts for the structure have been created they just need to be attached (spot welded) to the dome. On the base of the structure we are attaching a small piece of flat stock with a pre-drilled hole so that we can bolt the structure to a wooden base to create more stability. This week we are working on spot welding the structure together as wells as bolting the veneer to the structure.
