I have an interesting piece I picked up, it was a hanging lamp brass and yes it is square but food of thought, there are a lot of old brass lamps, that might make a nice cap/key. It would not need to be nearly as tall as this one.

Maybe the finale needs to be something cast from the copper pieces that have been generated as scrap. I'm sure you have the skills and artist ability to create the crowning jewel.. then it is "all" hand made with your skilled hands!

Same for the chimney... a sleeve would make a great addition but then you need to build a matching spark arrester. It doesn't have to be like the factory ones.

And you said--"getting near the top, with nothing left to do?"

Really interesting to watch your build, I think everyone agrees it is all about the love you put into your projects, it shows!

Russell,
Your cladding is turning out greater than I even expected! And I knew that you would do it right. For some reason the cladding reminds me of scales. And the mental picture that I am getting is screaming "The Copper Dragon" . Of course, in a few months, "The Green Dragon" may be more fitting. I love the look of oxidized copper.

Turtles don't have flames coming out of their mouths though--dragons do!

Guess I've been away from the world too long. Let's not pollute this fine thread that Russell has created with animation crap. I see way too much manga everywhere I look!

Russell,
I am updating my above suggestions to include "Dragoness" instead of dragon . With all the hard work, sweat, and toil it takes to forge their shape in to that fantasy you first envisioned: It somehow, helps to refer to them in the feminine gender .
