"Origin" Update-the beginning...

Pieces are being cut this week!! I just got back from Architectural MetalWorks where I got to see the water-jet in action :) Everything should be cut this week & then we get to put the puzzle together... The water-jet cuts through the copper like it's nothing: it will even cut through plate steel, stone, glass, tile: pretty much amazing tool. It uses a high pressure jet of water with an abrasive sand; crushed garnet, to cut with speed & precision.

Right now, it really does look like a giant puzzle; there are so many parts stacked up!
I'm so excited!! The brass will be in on Wed, & we should have all the pieces back & ready to start fitting by the end of the week. Can't wait to get started :)
More later....
