Sometimes you feel like a nut,sometimes you are one.
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.
Now THAT is fine art !!
Old tools and parts have such beauty if we only take time to look. Working with them makes it that much more fascinating.
That is heart wrenching!
Rich that could be course art,I cant see the threads.
Now that's funny!
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
Ed - Best "collection" of old wrenches I've ever seen! Thanks for posting,.....harold
This bull is named Leonard.
This is the most impressive one i've ever seen:
And Functional ART??????
Don't sit on that one on a HOT summer day,
in the sun.
Perhaps there is a market for all my early T parts after all. ;O)
Steve Humphrey - Yup! That's the one I had in mind,....thanks for posting the picture,.......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:
Steve,Was the black background used so no wrenches were cut? Very Nice.Bud.
We'll leave the light on for ya...
That is... cool, Steve
Leo, the face and eyes on the soldier you posted are... I just have to look past all the wrenches and goodies. Wow
Sometimes the simplest things

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.
Picked this up recently and not sure what particular vehicle it may be representing but it's sure not a black Model T.
Sean, Is that in front of your house? Very Cool!
Gene: That's over at Kevin's house on Frankfurt. Got to get you over there sometime.
