    30 lb Lawn Turkey

    This lawn turkey is my first attempt at metal art. It's about 4' tall and about 4" across.
    I realize it's the welding equivalent of drawing a stick figure, but I like it well enough for a first attempt.

    Sorry there weren't any construction pics. I wasn't planning on posting it.

    But now that we're all here, do any of you guys have project ideas for pipes?
    I've got a ton, probably more I'm sure.
    They're mostly 1/2" to 1 1/2" od, rusted all to hell, but there's still some steel under there.
    Any thoughts? Artistic, practical, or other?

    I was going to snap a couple of pictures of my racks, but it's dark now.

    Anyway, Thanks for looking.

    Hey thanks! You're right, I suppose it is tube. I continually forget the difference

    Thanks. The stance is definitely awkward. I did it that way for stability.

    I like that idea. My gf suggested that, too. But I don't know about a steel sprinkler.
