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

          Thatís 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.
