    I wanted to weld it at work. Didn't get time so I used quick steel to put it together
    It's made out of 1/2 stainless tubing.

    are you a professional welder?
    love your juliet's. would be great for x-metals. :D nice work.
    would be cool to do a polished metal to match the frame :D

    maybe cut out a eliptical O, grind it nice and smooth and weld it onto the stand somewhere? :D i think that'd be sick.

    I could defiantly use the plasma cutter and get a Oakley O and heliarc it to the stand. If all I had to do is weld it would have been ok. Since its stainless steel I would have to heliarc.

    Yea the joints are just putting it together with quick steel putty. It won't be pretty like this.
