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.

Read, "Further Along the Road Less Traveled" by M. Scott Peck M.D. and created this image from reading pages 38-39.
"It is important to realize that blaming is fun. Anger is fun. Hatred is fun. And like any pleasurable activity, it is habit forming- you get hooked on it.

41 Days

Fabricated steel bones with stainless steel highlights, bronze ligaments, and copper skin. You can't live in the southwest without sculpting a horse.

Sometimes here in Arizona you drive by as small, bare, dusty lot with a horse just starving and rotting away on it, and you wonder, "What in Hell are those people thinking?" as you contemplate the owner's reality.

new firepit commission.

firepit

I am trying to find out the best rustproofing idea for a firepit commission I have just finished.  It is 3/16 mild steel and will be placed a few blocks from the sea in San Francisco so it will rust.  There is already a nice patina on it which I am keen to keep.  Any suggestions for rustproofing without just painting it.  What oils can I use that will be ok with the fire and not smell too much.  


Cor-ten steel

| |

Hi,

My 1st post here. I was doing some browsing for handrail designs and came across architects using Cor-ten steel to create works or art, building claddings etc. My question is, if I cut up a 20ft shipping container, which is made of Cor-ten steel, remove the paint, would I get the same patina after?
