NRA Donation

Here is a chicken cooker that was donated to the NRA by Gross Brothers Welding. I did the wheels and logo. Plus the stainless bullet. Turned out nice.

More on the same Railing Project

I am posting a few images to show the spiral part of the same railing project I posted back in July. These photos are not great because the were taken with an ipod. But I think you can still get the idea. Shawn has done a nice job of taking our pieces and welding up the railing. Wraping the bottom post was a nice touch.

One hard part about this spiral was Shawn had to build the frame in place in the house, then cut it out in two pieces and bring it back to the shop where I could get true measurements of each space. As you go down the spiral it gets steeper and also tighter. It was a real challenge getting it all to work.

Now the trick is once it is powder coated Shawn must snake it back in to the house and get it back in place. And believe me when I tell you this is one heavy piece of railing.

Railing Project

Working with Gross Brothers Welding and Fabrication on a large railing project. The customer had a picture of a style of railing they thought they liked. I then worked with Shawn Gross and we came up with a rough layout. Then I spent a few days figuring out the pattern and how to get it to flow to the pickets on both the top and bottom of the railing. Here are a few photos of the results. This section is 18 feet long and it is the smaller section. After we cut the next large section then we will start on a spiral staircase to match this design.

Small angel on a stand we made as a donation piece for our granddaughter's preschool. She is 10 inches tall (the angel, not our granddaughter :) ) and 6 to 7 inches wide at the wings. Made of 16 gauge steel with copper halo and then clear coated. The base has a foam rubber bottom to keep from scratching wood surfaces. This is just one example of the angels we sell at shows, on and on

Table Maintenance

It appears to be time for some table repairs. Seems some of the small gantry roller bearings are wearing from the plasma dust. I guess considering how much we cut on the table, 2 years is not bad. They are pricey little suckers at $20 each. I needed 6 of them to start with. Might need more once I start checking the other ones out. Oh well.

Here is a Barn Star we did just a few weeks ago, the photo is before powder coating. The Star measures 6' at it's widest point.

Tucson Angel

The first project cut with the new setup is a 9'11" angel that will be installed in Tucson, AZ as a memorial to 9 year old Christina Green. She was the youngest of the six killed January 8th, 2011 by a gunman targeting State Representative Gabrielle Giffords.

This angel is designed by Lei Hennessy-Owens, cut by Waking Bear Studio, and welded/assembled by Gross Brothers Welding of Somerset, Pa. You can visit Lei's site here, Delivering Angels.

I apologize for the quality of the photos, did not have my good camera with me.
