Practicing a Bent: 1" = 1'

Ok, the kit arrived, the slab is poured, and now we need to start. Here we are studying David's instruction booklet.

We decided to build a baby bent first. Here is our practice version, a cupola bent built to scale by Dad Kiker. This gave us an opportunity to check our interpretation of David Howard's instructions and familiarize ourselves with the angles and the many pieces included in construction of a bent.

Then we practiced the real thing!
