Globe ...

Hi, 

I made this globe from scrap material from a feedmill...  

The elements are wear parts from a hammermill in which they grind the grains.

They are made of hardened carbon steel and rust beautiful for the time being.


Memorial sculpture

Work is progressing extremely slowly on the memorial sculpture. After designing the wings I was determined to have them cut by a local welding shop on their CNC plasma cutter. Gave them a JPEG of what I wanted and they were having a terrible time converting it to an .dxf file.

first attempt at patina

| | |

I just received the sculptnouveau patinas. I tried the copper universal patina on one of my candlesticks, also applied a green wax and clear coat... on another note- I dropped of the candlestick and a couple other pieces at the local antique/consignment store.


Another class project

A bird bath created out of two plow discs and a crank shaft (oops... camshaft)....

welding class project

|

I'm taking a tech school welding class for the second time so that I may use their equipment and hone my skills until my garage is completely set up and, most importantly, made fire safe. Here are a couple of my scrap metal projects- keep in mind, I'm very new to this so my stuff may seem mundane by comparison.

Re-purposed two junk mountain bikes for parts, used new thin-walled rectangular tube (because of its inherent flex as a natural "built-in" suspension system) for the frame and small expanded sheet steel for the deck.
