Well, some of
how it’s done.
Shown Right, Gail cuts a few crabs with an acetylene torch at the Herb and Garden Festival in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.
The design begins as an idea. A pattern is created from sketches using several computer programs. These programs make it possible to create almost any size of a particular design. The pattern is transferred to the steel sheet as a “suggestion” of where the cuts will be.
The torch is lit and the magic happens!
How it’s done…
Once the piece is cut (the easy part), the finishing begins. The waste, or slag, is ground off of the bottom side which almost always is the front. Then any bending or welding is completed, the piece sealed then painted.
