What Derek Made today! A decorative Window Grill....

Derek was the Top Bidder in the silent auction element of Bookwallah's 2nd Annual Fundraiser.

And guess what Derek won???

Me!

Actually, a morning session spent in my Studio - learning "Metal Fabrication techniques"-

with the Session's final semester, being a completely handcrafted hanging Window Grill.

The Window Grills design is based upon Midwestern Prairie Grass designs I drew out & enlarged

to Full Scale,allowing Derek to pick between two options I drew for him.

 

In today's session he learned cutting Steel w/ a Bandsaw + DrillPress, Fabrication of a square frame + Forging + MIG Welding +Grinding ,etc.

And, a the end of this mornings session Derek was able to take his piece home with him.

 

Was he happy?

Let's ask Derek?
