14 Spoked Wheel for cannons or wagons
This pattern can be used for any size wheel (rim)
This pattern is for a full scale (1:1) tepee but is easy to convert to 1:6 sacle by using the 2 inches =1 foot rule. I don't pin the cover together, I have it sewn together by my wife. I don't use stakes either and found that cattails make good lodge poles and can be easily replaced if broken. Just cut the cattails, peel off the outter layer and allow to dry before using.
Follow the directions for pole position
I made a scale 15 foot diameter tepee that was 30 inches wide.
Lodge Pole Position
It maybe hard to set up at first but if you setup on carpet the poles won't slide as you place and adjust the covering.
