We call it an Elephant's Foot. I asked him to "throw" a vase-like container that was wider at the bottom than at the top. I then placed an Awning Arm Anchor inside and set it in Plaster-of-Paris.

We use a pair of them to support our awning while camping.

We made guitars in our machine shop. Dave used engine-turning techniques for the finish, and used aircraft grade aluminum for tone quality and sustain.

TOOOOO Cool!

Edit add: Your trailer looks really neat as well. I like the tandum axels, to bad Scamp doesn't use them on their trailers. The "bubble" rock guard looks nice, seems to be able to cover the window a/c when it is closed. Very neat rig.

As part of my job I'm called on every year or two to produce a work of art. I just finished one such work and thought I'd show off a bit.


[ATTACH][/ATTACH]


This is a PC board for the next generation of IR thermometers. The actual size is .6" x 1.6".

Now it's your turn to show off a bit with any artistic item you're created.

Byron, I am not getting a photo of your art work, is it just me?

I just get this:

I'd really would like to see it.
