All trussed up for the trip to the powder coater
On the hook and back up on the table for finish welding
All tack welded together and upright again
Setting up to climb inside and make the tack welds on the final set of fractals
Blocking the last of the fractals into place for tack welding
Sculpture 75% assembled; time to select a color
The first six interior welds...hard to get to and hot...like working in an oven
150lbs tack-welded, only 60lbs to go...
Tack-welding fractals into "quads"
Ready to start weld-up of "fractal" tendrils
Stiffening gussets installed underneath to prevent base "fractals" from spreading
Fitting up the base "fractals"
Welding up "fractal" pairs
The joy of edge detailing
Triangular "fractal" component production
