  • dusty's gittin' done!

    Hi all!
    Miss you guys. Just a quick update to let you-all know that all is good and my project is almost done- I see light at the end of the tunnel!
    This summer I set out to finish my outdoor kitchen. I made my counters from old pool table slates...they are black...so hot in the sun that you can't touch them. No good. I deceided to build a canopy over the entire project. Seemed like a good idea at the time but has turned into a HUGE endevor.
    But I am finally done laying bricks and, thanks to my welding sons, I am reaching the end of the canopy project.
    I will try not to be such a stanger.

    I have taken some pictures of the giant metal superstructure but I can't seem to get the uploaded onto here. Sorry. I will try again soon.

            More metal. 24 guage sheets. Painted white on both sides from the manufacturer. I will glue and screw them down as when they tried to weld one into place, it warped badly.

              Wow, that looks so cool! Cant' wait to see it finished.

              ...And after that you'll be back on the forum more often, ok?

                Dusty,

                That is an amazing set up! (where can I find some "Welding Sons"?) The canopy is going to be fantastic.

                  Good one Ken . Once you find them let us know, 'cos I'd like some, too.

                    At least you won't have any concerns with structural integrity!

                        Pretty handy eh? My middle son, Derek is a welding artist- I think that's what it is called. He builds sculptues of metal. My youngest, Kyle, learned to weld from him. Osmosis, I think.

                        Derek did some, but Kyle did most.

                        I have almost finished installing the roof. It goes much faster that I thought. I will certainly finish tomorrow.
                        I will try to take some pics. Maybe some of some sculpures too.

                          Careful!
                          Like I said, that canopy has turned into a MAJOR project. This outdoor kitchen is taking way too long. I started 8/16/07, and have been working on it very steady since then.
                          My enthusiasm is waning.

                            A welding artist... that is so cool! Yes, please do post some pics of his sculptures!

                            My most limiting factor for making mosaic sculptures is being able to produce a stable rebar structure to support the cement base. I'm very jelous, too

                              Dusty, welcome back - that's one heck of an entrance, with that canopy structure! The Welding Sons did a great job and I'd love to see some sculpture pics too.
