Step 1: Bamboo and Structure
The structure of this geodesic domes is shown in the photo below:
Step 2: Turning Bamboo Sticks Into Tubes.
Poke out these barriers with a long metal rod.
Step 3: Stringing the Bamboo Tubes
Step 4: Constructing the Structure.
Step 5: Creating the Covering
We cut 25 4.5ft x4.5ft x4.5ft triangles from old vinyl. Then we cut up and pieced together 25 4ft x4ft x4ft triangles from old clothing. We sewed each cloth triangle to the vinyl one, and then sewed the vinyl triangles together, creating the covering.
We also made a vinyl 4ft-side pentagon and clothe 4ft-side pentagon for the floor.
The floor attaches to the outer covering by zippers. One of the bottom ring triangles is a door, and opens also by zipper.
Over all, it is a lot of sewing.
Step 6: Structure Completed
Step 7: Packing Up
When the structure is taken down, everything can fit into this bag.
So this bamboo geodesic dome is quite portable.
