Strings ...... of Metal?

We've spent the last four days in Tahoe weaving threads of 3/8" steel rod. Does this count as a thing from strings??

The Crew:

Michele and Ginnie working the patina and waxing station.

Stu and me. There's lots of fitting to do! Cut and "button" one end, fit, finish cut and button again.

Run to entry (and there's a third one to the basement.)

Oh, and the view? It's only the entire lake!

Wow! I'm always impressed by welding- it is something that is so beyond my abilities. Sounds like a fun and productive trip! Happy New Year! Stephanie
