"The goal of the makeover of our yard was to ... lift the eyes upward to the big, open sky.... Following Convolution's lines definitely completes that effect.... A lesser sculpture would have fallen short."

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.
