Market umbrella pavilion

The designers at Dragonwing have created a website entitled Adventures in Tent Design: How I Turned a Market Umbrella into a Medieval Arming Tent which chronicles the steps needed to create a small arming pavilion. (photos)

From the website:

"Last winter, I found a frame for a "market umbrella" -- one of those umbrellas with a wooden frame that you see in malls and sidewalk cafes -- in a thrift store. I bought it for ten dollars. Making a tent using one of these frames as a structure had been kicking around in my head for some time, and this acquisition put the project into high gear."
