This was given as a present to my father in law for his birthday. It's what reminds me of being in muskoka. I put 5 metal fridge magnets on it as well so he could hang some pictures on it if he wanted.
I made this wind blown tree out of 1/8" hot rolled, drew out the tree and roots than cut out with my plasma. I welded the roots onto the base of the tree with mig as well as a piece of 1/2" round about 3" long so I would have something the attach it to the rock with. I drilled the granite with a hammer drill and 1/2" bit than used epoxy to make the tree stay put. The front of the tree was ground shiny with a flap disc after heating and bending the branches to give it a more organic feel. I used a propane torch to heat the steel and colour it, than clear coated it.
