Build a Dome

 The structural framework of a Timberline Dome consists of 2" x 6" wooden struts and our unique heavy duty SteelStar Connector system. The color-coded struts are bolted to color-coded connectors using two wrenches. Once the free-standing framework is erected, T-blocking and color-coded wooden studs are nailed at 16" on center in every triangle. This facilitates installation of the plywood shell and the addition of standard size conventional finishing materials.
To complete the basic dome shell, pre-cut, color-coded triangular plywood panels are nailed to the framework. The color-coded parts are cut and drilled precisely. They are easy to identify, and they fit the way the instructions say they should. We guarantee it.
