    The first one is a Trellis Birdbath Stand the next one is a Pirates Chest that holds two bottles of wine. If you would like to see more of my work you can see it at cooliron.com.

    A lot of hair pulling

    I designed the whole thing on cad cam. Then I cut it out on my plasma table. The big thing with a new project like this is you have to be willing to throw it out and start over and never give up. I have a big scrape metal pile to prove it.

    Copper Patina

    I buy my copper patina sheets ready to use, don't care to monkey around with chemicals or hazardous waste.
