I jokingly refer to this structure, Malcolm's Deck, as my largest turning. It is a donut shaped observation deck surrounding a mountain peak, 900 feet in circumference, overlooking Lake Tahoe, located at the mid-station of Heavenly Ski Area's Gondola. I designed and built this with a crew of Heavenly Ski Area employees in the summer of 2000. There are many corners as the one million pounds of steel conforms to the natural topography. If you look closely at the walking surface, you can see that the steel decking is segmented, much like wood in a segmented woodturning.
