      The original poster, that would be you, can sticky the thread too. Just click on Thread Tools - the drop down will have the sticky option in it.

              I actually started to work on this a while back but got distracted on other projects. Thanks to Hotfoot, shovels are now one of my favorite "scrap to look for" items. Here's something I just "stuck" together with a couple of spade shovels and some other stuff......

                    Did you chisel cut the leaves? That is just WOW! How did you texture the stems?

                    WELL DONE!!!!!!!!!!!

                        thanks for the kind words.. the leaves were formed on a vice, hammered to angle, then textured with a hand grinder.. don't have a forge, so can't really do them well. the texture of the stem is done by "painting" on the weld with my mig welder... low arc, little higher wire speed.
                        Hope that helps..

                                What are you welding the bolts with? I wanted to try these sometime, but was unsure what others used.
