Designed for affordability and ease of use, our connectors fit standard equal-length 2x2" and 2x4" lumber. No fancy math or calculations needed, simply pre-drill and assemble from the ground up. Assemble your Magidome in an afternoon!
Cut your Lumber into 25 equal lengths and pre-drill each & using a connector as a template.
4 ft lumber = 7.5 ft wide + 5.5 ft tall
5 ft lumber = 9.5 ft wide + 7 ft tall
6 ft lumber = 11 ft wide + 8 ft tall
7 ft lumber = 13 ft wide + 9.6 tall
8 f lumber = 15.2 ft wide + 11 ft tall
* width= total width of assembled dome.
For strength, 2x4" lumber assembled with carriage bolts/washers/nuts is reccomended * Exceeding 8ft lengths not reccomended
On level ground, assemble snug from the ground up. Be sure to support each beam during installation. 5/16 Carriage bolts recommended for robust projects.
Customize your dome!
Be sure to brace your dome, anchor to the ground and shelter from the wind. Bracing your dome adds strength and style! (See below)
Finally, customize to perfect your project! Cover in poly for a greenhouse, wrap in fabric for a tent. Be sure to brace, anchor to the ground and shelter from the wind.

Cut at opposing angles on each end.
Screw them into each of your existing Magidome triangles.
SHelter from the wind and anchor to the ground!
Cut your ends at 31.6º at opposing angles to close the gap between each board.
5/16th carriage bolts+washers+nuts are best for robust projects
Leave air vents if covering to avoid over-heating
Covering your Magidome®
Adding braces is key for covering your dome. Doing so will increase environmental forces on your dome, so be sure to clear off any snow and anchor/shelter for high wind exposure. If covering with wood we reccomend adding braces cut with a compound saw. (see adding braces)
The roof of a magidome can be left to extend over the side slightly for rain run-off.
