I had to learn to gas weld for this item.  I’ve made a few and will certainly be making more.  I suspect they’ll sell well.

    Very nice. I like the twist in the birdfeeder holder.

    It’s kind of interesting to see what impresses people Vs. what’s actually difficult to do. Twists are amazingly easy to pull off, but really catch people’s eyes.

    Welding the little crossbar on the plate stand was MUCH more difficult than twisting a square bar. Making the curved prong on the poker took a long time and a ton of hammering, but people don’t look at it and say “Oooh, nice taper and curve!”.

    Note To Self: More twists in retail pieces.

    Definitely more twists in retail pieces. Curly Qs are good too.

    Everything is looking really good JB.

    I worked on scrolls (Curly Qs) for a hour and a half yesterday. Getting better…
