    Not sure exactly what I'm looking at. In all my time in the brush country we just lit the mesquite and threw on the discara. Seen some nice ones.

    If I got this right and the red weld goes from bottom to (open ) the only problem I can see is bending where angle changesName:  64B8728C-0BC9-4061-93E0-8EC1C6C33A25.jpg

    Yes pretty much. It is 4 pieces though the top right piece will be duplicate for the back corner of the installation. I dont plan to bend but rather cut and pieced together

    I have some 2-7/8 pipe left over plan on planting it it in concrete and bringing the installation up to the elevation that they will have the rock base at. So it will appear to be set in the rock but actually be self supporting. This is technically my first functional art installation so I want it to go perfectly

    What size plate are you using? How are you lifting it?

    Are you setting the post and then putting in rock or is the rock set already? With art you can't go wrong.

    Ya da! Lol going to run the belt sander over it to remove mill scale. They just want it to be evenly rusty all over.
