Pavilion Project: Part II
The first picture shows the wooden hoop for the shoulder of the tent. There are eight segments, and each is joined to the next by a skarf joint and two ferrules.
The second shows the roof with the hoop in place. Here it is steadied only by four of what Il Libro del Sarto calls master guys, which run to fittings on a cone at the top of the tent.
The third shows the tent with walls, shoulder guys and the tentmaker included for scale.
In the fourth the tentmaker has shifted to the background to check stake positions.
