Cutting Dome Panels

After my leg work was done, I did a little dome work. I number all the panels and started cutting them out. The smallest arc on the dome panels where too small to use a Dremel so I left the bottom corners of each of the panels uncut with the intention of cutting them after I cut the top arcs. I used a carpet knife (I left my exacto knife at home) to make a deep score in the top arc, finished cutting the bottom panel corners, and then slowing bent the panels inward causing them to snap/break on the score lines.
