    haha that would have definitely helped.

    I work for FSU so I have access to all of the Visual Arts shops. They are lacking a good horizontal band saw though.

    Blue, hmmm... must be a male sculpture... The shape reminds me of a large marine plant or animal or maybe an amoeba but larger. Very organic and multi cell like with the circles as theme.

    I have rough cut torched off at both ends ~ 8' 2 7/8" posts. I clean up the one UP end so I can make a nice fence... I have maybe 100 circles about an inch thick laying around in a trough each one rough on one side from the torch cut and smooth on the other side from the abrasive saw.... I've often wondered what to do with them, can't seem to throw them away to scrap... maybe integrate them into a gate? Inspired

    Very keen results, what's next?

    Very nice. looks like something that should be outside Seattle's EMP. with all the rain we get and all.
    There are no problems. There are only solutions. It's your duty to determine the right one.

    Well I finished the install this weekend in Chattanooga. I drove up from Tallahassee with my brother and met my parents on the way. I had a great time and couldn't of done it with out them. There are some great people in Chattanooga and they were all willing to help with the install, even though it was pushing 100 degrees outside.
