    Default Skull...

    So, I love to weld, and I figure there has to be something I can do with it to make some spare change. I've done a lot of welding for 'friends' over the years and never charged them a cent. Repaired things, built things, but I've been planning on doing metal art for some time but always put it off. Well, there's this "world famous" metal artist here in town that I look at his 'art' and think, hell I could to that. So, I've kicked myself in the rear and have a 'ROUGH' start on a skull. When it's done I'll put it on etsy and ebay and test the waters. If I can make $100 or something, I'll continue with other stuff...

    Good start!

    pretty slick!
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.

    Slowly, it's coming along... one more piece figured out, upper jaw, and working on what to use for teeth. All the little welding spatter will all be gone when it's done. I'll wire brush it on the outside and probably clear coat it when it's done. This is still totally rough... better get back to the teeth... work in progress...

    Got some upper teeth... I'm beginning to wonder what it will look like when it's done now... since it's just a piece at a time, no plan...
