Hi Charles, thanks for your comment. The design calls for a 12' radius across the top and a 10' radius on the back glued up under tension. I thought a dish was the way to go. The smallest radius dish that I have sourced is 12'. So, I'm trying to find a way to accomplish what the design calls for. I don't know if I'll build another, so I don't want to spend a couple of hundred bucks on dishes that I won't use again. I would love to know about other solutions.
