Building a dimensional jigsaw puzzle
The boys finished welding in the thousands of feet of pencil rod to complete the framework for the inside of the mine shaft today. That meant the crew could begin the labor intensive task of attaching the galvanized diamond lath to the two middle sections. Peter continued to block in the structure and framework for the outside portions of the mountain. Everything is being designed to come apart in eight large sections before we start applying the sculpted concrete skin. Once the concrete and painting are done the pieces will then be transported to the worksite and craned into position to be bolted back together once more. This is the single largest piece we've done in our shop to date.
