Pavilion Project: Part X

Two notes:

If you are building a pavilion with sloping walls and a valance, making the valance a truncated cone rather than a cylinder will be more complex, but will interact with the walls much more amicably.

For a pavilion like mine, with separate walls and roof, channels for the hoop, and an inner and outer valance, setup and takedown go much more smoothly if, before you mate or unmate the final segments, you flip the outer and inner valances onto the roof all around the roof. This reduces constriction of the channels, and gives you more working room for mating or unmating the final joints.
