Cool idea.

Would be nice if you edit out some of the cutting and added SE of the bending of the canopy.

It looks like you used a coffee cup as a molding device.

Yes, I did use a coffee cup, as well as a cylindrical wood blank, to help in the shaping. The memory card in the was filled,in the first camera that my daughter was using to record me, so I just kept working the plastic until I got towards the completion of the design piece and then grabbed one of my other cameras to finish the recording. Don't worry, I intend to make another canopy soon and will have the entire build, recorded.
