**What shape to cut the “wedges” from 2x4 sheets of copper?**

Kyle first made a profile, then a concrete form that he would pound the sheet copper into. He knew he would need nine segments, or wedges to complete the dome, but did not know how to cut them before hand so that, when bent into form, they would mate “simply”--read that as “linear”, “clean”.

Wall & Patio Designs A number of years back we put an addition on our home. It required us to rework our retaining walls. We opted for concentric circles, stepped back, echoing the kitchen bow window. We already had a pattern established in the old portion of the patio and needed something to complement it in the new. My first thought was prompted by the phase plane portrait of a pendulum. Domed Ceiling Szalassi Polyhedron Osculating Circle Elliptical Stair Penrose Tile Desargue’s Theorem
