It took me 5 tries......but I finally have all the panels drawn on the dome that I want to cut out. The dome kept shifting on me while I was drawing a piece, I wouldn't notice it, and then the next piece would be out of sync with the previous piece and so on, but I can safely say 100% that all the pieces are ready for cutting. I have decided to go ahead and cut all the pieces that should be cut, and then for ones I plan to be non-functional, I will simply secure them down. This way though, in the future, I can always open them back up!!
Tomorrow, I have a light day so I expect to start making cuts on the pie panels......should be fairly scary, so we'll see how she goes.
