    I was way too uncoordinated to play tennis. Heck I couldnít even ride a two wheel bike til I was ten. True story.

    Re: Scrap metal art or projects

    My problem as a kid was I could never find anyone my age to play tennis that was worth a dang. Then as an adult itís not like Iím asking strangers to play Tennis and most adults canít play tennis worth beans either lol. Now Iím too old and achy to go chasing a ball on the court for fun and competitive sport.

    I'm an unathletic powerlifter type. My dad on the other hand is a freak athlete. He picked up tennis when he was in his 70's and can not find anyone to play now that he is 86. His focus now is pickle ball.

    I rolled a 1" wide x 1/8" flat steel hoop and welded it inside the barrel, with 3/16" of it proud of the edge. (There's a picture on the previous page that shows it better) The lid when closed overlaps the lip, so as far as Arizona conditions are concerned - that's weatherproof . I have the flag, wanted pics without it (and all stickers on it) so it'll be mounted last.

    The neighbors really dig it - the wife, not so much.

    Awesome !! I agree.
    With her playing welder, that makes it easy to buy gifts for her. Just buy her whatever you want.

    Sounds like the kind of guy that would work at Intel in Chandler.

    Picked up a karate sand bag to use as a shotbag for beating on metal and a good old HF mallet. Made a couple patterns out of 22ga to add to the collection, then cut some flower shapes out of 26ga copper and went at it.

    Experimented with heat - annealing and quenching with water, CO2, compressed air - whatnot.

    Finished off my almost depleted C25 bottle practicing and adding to my settings cheat sheet before picking up a new one. Tomorrow I hope to make some more hummingbirds. Love these long weekends.

    Very nice work. BD1 used to make and post a lot of very nice silverware art here and in a few other threads. He has been quiet lately on here but it still pops in every once in a while.

    Looking at the beautiful ones by Saltlick, now I know what to do with all the leftover spoons I'm quickly accumulating! The flower is really nice too.

    Some of the sheet metal guys that hang out at the HAMB like to make mallets out of old baseball bats for beating on the shot bags. Basically the bottom part of the bat becomes the handle and they cut off a chunk of the top for the head. Not sure if that's something you would be interested in or not. I've got a bat set aside for the purpose, but I haven't made it yet.
