Big Projects, Beginning to End, Dirty, Filthy Fun


I know it’s filthy but I love the way a heaping pile of metal dust looks on my shop floor. The tracks and patterns I leave in it while I work are nice to look at. These patterns are from the end of the Hogtown Creek Headwaters Nature Park sign project. I’d estimate this dust represents 7 days of grinding. Aren’t they beautiful?
