"Every time I go by the [Mighty Owl Oak] there are children, parents or teachers standing around it. It is wonderful to see the kids bring their parents into the school to see the tree and their leaf."

How to Create a Sculpture, Part 9: Attaching the Base



Kevin is finally ready to attach the base to the sculpture. That involves creating a series of 4-inch box tubing that fit between and will be welded to the triangular supports inside the sculpture for strength and stability. Caron shows how to cut and fit the box tubing and how to weld it onto the base. Please note: the welding scenes were edited so that you didn't have to watch too many minutes of welding. Click here for more information on this project.
