Haven't done an update on the truck in a while. Weather hasn't cooperated. When it has been nice, I've spent the time restoring a lamp I made in John Gerrets' welding class at Tulane. It went underwater in Katrina (or at least the bottom 18-inches or so) and needed serious de-rusting.
Took a grinder and some sandpaper to it and added a new shade and voila! It's pretty impressive in person. It's about 6 or 7 feet tall, with a 5 foot "wingspan). The base is about a 1/4" piece of plate steel (weighing about 30 pounds). I welded it up all by myself as my final project in class.
