Flooring of Cylinder

About using carpet, but found flooring instead – use pictures of setting up, cutting and inside cylinder

To weight down my cylinder and make it taut, I wanted to find some sort of carpet to fill the bottom, so I went to the local carpet shop to ask if they had any large off-cuts of carpet – the owner sent us to their skip to see what we could find. We did not find any suitable carpet, however, we did find a large amount of tongue and groove flooring that was going to waste. With the help of my mum and sister, we pulled out a large amount of this flooring – enough to make a 2m diameter circle.

When we got home, we laid out all of the flooring upside down and marked out the circle:

We then cut out this circle using a jigsaw and taped together pieces if there two pieces were used in the same row, as to not lose/get pieces confused:

The flooring then fit nicely into the base of the cylinder.
