Texturing the frame!
Bending the top arch!
Checking the arch against my drawing.
Upsetting or bulging the ends of the top a lower bars.
Finishing the upset!
Welding the finished frame pieces.
Grinding the welds smooth!
Filing the tight corners.
Resting while the metal heats.
Using heat and hammer to hide the weld joints and make the frame look like one piece.
The finished joints!
The result of yesterday's efforts.
Today I'll be working on handles and feet.
