Although the work is hard, physical and dirty at times, I can't think of anything more fun than turning silly concepts into physical objects made of steel and concrete. They need to be tough for they will be interacted with by many thousands of guests through the years. They have to be cleverly designed and built so that people who see them wonder, at least just a little, if it is real. It has to appear to function.
The track portion of the 'One Track Wheelbarrow' is now complete. The hundreds of individual pieces are plasma cut from half inch thick steel plate. Heavy duty doesn't really describe this little beauty. Tomorrow I'll begin the frame and upper assembly. With each piece I add my smile gets just a little bigger. :)
