Standing now

A bit of a jump from my last post. That long thin block is now worked into it’s twisting segments. Here I am fixing it to it’s base. A stainless steel sleeve is glued into the sculpture and a stainless pin sticks out of the base. Whilst the glue is setting I can move the carving around to ensure that the carving is perpendicular by the time that the glue goes off. You can see that my gantry is not tall enough to lift such a tall sculpture and it is held up with blocks. Very bad practice! Naughty boy! It would be a good idea to make some extra long legs for it sometime.

  1. Nice one old Boy, what are those breeze blocks rated at weight wise?
