Like I said before, I work for a trade show company and some times we get some interesting requests for booth furnishings. These guys wanted a grass hut with a platform hanging from the roof to hold there video projector. So that’s what they got. I’ve never built a grass hut before so I had to SWAG it quite a bit(scientific wild ass guess). I used an auger bit and a lot of 1” dowels to hold things together. Lashing the leg braces with rope made a surprising difference the legs felt solid and didn’t flex much at all. The rest I just made it up as i went along. They were happy with it so it all worked out.
Check out the knock-down chair in the last pic, it was a prop they had in there booth, such a simple design with all that not so simple carving.
