|Thread: how can i make uniform diametre ends to coppiced poles?|
That is EXACTLY what i'm looking for. Thank you, now I can get on with my build! Great weekend to you.
D. Big grin.
Goe are domes are a hobby. We're planning to camp in it and when we're at home we'll have a play den - jungle gym in it for the kids.
Thanks for that. Yes, that is probably the tool I used. I never tried to see whether it would leave a cylindrical section if I kept turning beyond the initial "tip".
Will post pictures when I'm done.
Hello one and all,
I'm new here and I have quite a specific question. I am planning to build a geodesic dome from coppiced hazel poles. I need to find an efficient and effective way to make sure that all the ends are the same diametre because i have to fit metal or plastic pipe over the end for the connectors.
I have tried:
a draw knife - takes ages and not very exact.
a sort of pencil sharpener - quite good but leaves pointed ends. I need straight cylinders (anyone know the name for that tool?)
I have seen a jig set up for a router - efficient and fairly quick
any other ideas
