lucky 3

At the third time of trying we've made the dish.

#1 : metal rim disaster : though meant to be fabricated as a circle it arrived as an ellipse. We only discovered this when we'd put 3/4 of it on.

#2 : the ply circular rim disaster : not strong enough, went all wonky and eventually collapsed.

#3 : straight edges and braces. Why didn't we think of this in the first place.
