I can send them to Danner, they have a bunch of packages that have different options.

I have great interest in craft/trades that involve a lot of custom handwork, and I have various levels of experience with blacksmithing/metal working, pottery, and woodwork. The cobblers trade has always been interesting to me because of the work involved and we had a few near me in CT. They were old timers that really knew their stuff and resurrected many pairs of battered old work boots..a couple for my dad. Really cool stuff.


Bruce....sorry to get off track.

Dave, I doubt I could ever be a Cobbler in your sense, but I am known to "cobble" things together. This is a pic of me finishing a project I put together for a friend who also had polio. He is more affected than I and needs to sleep and spend much part of the day in a hospital bed. He has been very afraid (almost phobic) that power would go out and he would be trapped in the bed. He also could not afford an off the shelf solution and asked me to come up with something. I cobbled together a box that switched between house power and an inverter connected to a retired wheelchair battery. It worked and should keep the bed powered for weeks (enough to get through a hurricaine). I was pretty proud of the result.

Now you have got my attention ... Elec.trickery now that's something I know nothing about. I can change a light bulb but anything over basic 12 volt car power I never touch. I'm a bit respectfully of something you can't see that will kill you and unlike wood and leather and steel you can't use a hammer on it.
I suppose each to there own
Regards dave

Well something resembling an arch has emerged. How long should the mortar cure before removing the form?

Now that looks better and better everyday. I can almost smell the bread baking!
I noticed that you have a thermal break between the entranceway and dome and its full of insulation. That's good but the bare surface of the insulation not so good . Those fibres have to be sealed in you can't leave them open to the air. You can fill with a piece of metal tube or channel but that could be hard to shape and get the correct dimension. You also could fill with a pearlite cement mix ...
Anyway that's your thoughts on it ...has anyone else any ideas
Whilst I asking what are you finishing the dome with ( notice I didn't us the term plan either)
Regards dave
