Excellent , with one "minor" , yet important detail...

Look at your actual hand in that position...

First , your thumb , is not Quite that long , or as skinny...

( should be a "shad" shorter and consider the width ,
as opposed to the other fingers...again a "shade" off
yet that does make a difference )

Two , the rest of the fingers...again , look at your own hand...

Are not the base of each finger , a shade wider , than the
rest of the finger , when considering the distance from
hand palm to first knuckle ?

In most people I have seen , there are those type of
subtle differences...( otherwise , excellent ! )

As you present better executed images over time ,
I shall offer things I did not before...

Know I love your work , and take it or leave it...

Looking forward to seeing the next one ,
and the completed triptych !

and after cutting and shaping the pile of metal above into over 220 pieces, drilling over 1,000 holes, colour coding the 6 differing lengths, making 70+ discs from 3mm galvanised steel, and 500+ nuts and bolts later it became the structure for an 8 metre geodesic greenhouse (put up last Friday) - and that was after hand pick n' shovelling approx 40 tons of rocky clay to make a flat space in a sloping bit of the garden.

... Literally the first place my brain went on seeing that picture...

Na, in all seriousness, great bit of engineering, that. Is it gonna be a greenhouse of some kind?

Edit: didnít see the greenhouse bit in the original comment. Very good.

I started digging in January, bought the metal just before lock-down in March, and so it became my lock-down project ... arms & back o.k  
... and by the way, have just been looking at this thread for the first time and love your carvings. All the best, Josh.

PS: extra dome pic from last night as the sun was setting

Ah - the Crystal Maze with Richard O'Brian - that takes me back. I think it was a 'bastardised' geodesic dome, but Buckminster Fuller would not have minded; he liked people to experiment with his ideas.

Thank you. Now I just have to "fill in" the 100+ triangles (no more than 5 the same throughout) by making 'windows' - probably wooden frames with UV-resistant poly-tunnel plastic staple-gunned onto them. Hope to be done by Autumn in time for Winter planting to extend our growing season.

When i was 17, i built this and when i was about 40 something i sold it in a pawn shop for $50 bucks.

Evidently when i went online later i discovered i could have got a lot, a lot, a lot more.

O well, it's not like i spent hours and dollars of fun with this!

(i often hooked it up to my stereo for lighting effects - LOL
