Kleiner Park: Fabrication: cutting parts

 Just a few pics from today's adventures in fabrication....  I spent the afternoon at Idaho Custom Ironworks helping to move & load steel plates onto & off of the plasma table: the plates were so heavy, we had to use the crane.
 We got most of the heavy parts cut today; these will be the structural gussets & base plates for the three sculptures; tomorrow, we will finish up, & take a truck-load of cut parts to the fabrication shop.
 This is what happens when you don't have your gloves on & try to move heavy pieces of steel....

The fab shop is going to begin cutting the beams tomorrow....look for more updates then :)

Long day today & my fingers are sore, but I'm really excited to be moving forward.
More updates to come :)
