I welded the bottem thing that keeps the blue prusic from falling off and to keep the hook stable with 3 points of contact... other then that... I forged the tip and used a hammer and a vise and a oxy fuel set up to bend the metal!

Simplicity ... Chouinard would have forged it but you got the principle.

How does it work?

Well, i'll stick with quickdraws, but you could always get a job at the dock slinging haybales or whatever.

rebar is definately a great medium for industrial art though.

Recently completed this piece for a mother who's son not only graduated from the BUD/S training as a Navy Seal, but also just got back from deployment in Afghanistan. She wanted to give him a Christmas gift to commemorate his hard work.

I sent all morning fitting the footboard arch into the frame & rail assembly. A ton of hand work scribing, cutting, & chiseling, but besides the slow process it went pretty well. These type of operations keep me up at night but now I can take my Festivus break knowing that the headboard end will go smoothly when I return to the shop.

The shop's landlord has a very fitting sign for days like this.

Added a crude railing to the stairs in one of my boss's rentals. He is on a tight budget, so I am following his design, but doing the majority of cuts and assembly.
