Kevin Begins Shaping the Trunk     39 of 84



With all of the tree sections now welded together and standing, Kevin begins the long, long process of bending the steel rods to shape the trunk. He uses a rosebud tip on his oxygen-acetylene torch to heat the 1" rod to red-hot so he can bend it. He also will adjust the roots to make them look more like hands.
