Building a Monumental Sundial
Some time ago I prepared a PowerPoint presentation to illustrate the work involved in designing and building The Pinawa Heritage Sundial, a monumental sundial located in the centre of our town. The project turned out to be a great success due to the dedicated involvement of many volunteers.
The presentation has been sitting in my computer for a number of years and I would like to share it with you in hope that it may inspire you to take on a sundial project...big or small. But be warned that there will be a lot of hard work and moments of frustration. Don't let that stop you though.
The design of this sundial was done using computer aided design software. Numerous drawings were created dealing with all aspects of the sundial's design. If you are interested in seeing an example of a typical drawing click here for a pdf file.
