Steve - Creativity like this always amazes me. I guess being a "left brain" person, it makes me realize how different we all are in seeing and manipulating things. Thanks for posting it.

Old tools and parts have such beauty if we only take time to look. Working with them makes it that much more fascinating.

Seems like this post would be a good place for pictures of "mechanical sculpture" made from old worn out Model T Ford parts. A well known metal bench made from Model T parts comes to mind,.....but I don't have a picture of it,....maybe somebody else would post it here. Anyway,.....a real "work of art" for sure,.....harold

Re the left brain comment, this I understand. I look at these and think why I didn't think of that, but when I look a tool all is see is what it was used for in the first place, a tool. (or car part as it may be)

Great Steve! Very artistic! If the crescent wrench had been positioned upside down, it would look just like a parrot with the eye in the right location. I love it. Jim Patrick

This is fun to see the creativity. The Steampunk folks are enjoying it. Some of the beauty of it is in the parts themselves. I have been enjoying these photos:

My wife decided to learn how to weld and use the plasma cutter. After some lessons, I gave her a cam, valve springs and pile of scrap to choose from. This was her first welding project. I sits proudly in our garden.

Hey Duey, It is very impressive, it is a WW1 memorial, the photo's are from the makers yard, a blacksmith from Dorset (UK), Martin Galbavy, It is supposedly in its official place now but i've no idea where that is...

Sorry to bump this thread. Thanks Leo! No matter on location. I'll likely never see the giant's eyes in person! Cool thread.

Outstanding!!! Actually you guys make me sick. I have the skill and equipment to make stuff like that, I use for work, but not the creativity or imagination to design them.
Very good work.
