Darn I was hoping for a large buckyball
grid and few H atoms in the center.

Mixed units here, do you want your fusor
to crash into Mars?

All kidding aside how do you plan
to make the grid. With a diameter under 1/4"
that is bit too small for a wire grid.
The only way I can see would be to etch
a very tiny metalic shell into a grid shape.

It looks to be a very nice little fusor.
