Mining for FUN!

Work continues on all fronts. Up at the lake the crew is busy welding and applying mesh to the lower fence. In the shop we are applying the final touches to make the balloon ready for concrete. The ballon basket started getting the concrete this morning. We are also planning the next pieces to be started including the water tower and mining car.

The signs for the project will ne routed on our CNC router and so I spent a little time building the necessary routing file. We'll combine high tech with some old fashioned hand work to create some pretty cool signs.

I also whipped up a more detailed color concept drawing.

The mine car is now ready for the mesh which will make it ready for the sculpted concrete. This is going to be fun!

The structural steel is now ordered and as soon as it arrives we'll get busy to build the whole big piece. I can hardly wait...
