  • Pilot Sculpture

    The WW2 Pilot sculpture is half done! This sculpture will be going in front of the Jackson County Airport, Jackson MI. I have 280 hours in this project so far. Let me know what you think!

        Looks good.
        It's like he's putting his helmet on.

          Thats incredible, simply amazing to see sketches turned into 3D art. I have no artistic abilities.

                    Very nice! I even like the little punched metal piece in the frame on the wall over the light switch in the last picture. Maybe you can also fill us in on some of the steps you take to make this, if it's not too much of a secret.

                      This was a clock I made a few years ago. I made the frame using my break, and then used a piece of expanded metal and some sheet metal for the center piece. I then welded washers on the back of the center, and drilled holes in the outer frame. Then used copper wire to "web" the center in. Put the guts of an old clock in it, and it has kept the time in my shop ever since.
