Default Dome ceiling on the cheap

Trusses were ordered with a nondescript sq. vault. It was later framed out to a flat circle on top of that was placed what had been an eight foot satelite dish.
(fibreglass) Sorry,photo was not good enough.

I had pics of the framing before the computer crashed and the last pic was after the ceiling was painted white so and it didn't show up, other than white on white and I couldn't make it out.
But I thought it was a great use of old dishes that can be had for free.

I love to repurpose stuff. The other day I took an old TV cart with rollers on it and mounted my 12" chop saw on it. Beats throwing it away. Now I can move the saw around without a lot of lifting when I need it.

I have a chopsaw bolted to an old bar-b-que, put it in level with side tables. Old radiator hose dumps dust in bucket on lower shelf .

The gold accents were a nice touch, Neal! I like your repurposed ceiling.
