          That's fantastic! I need to go out and practice with my plasma cutter. All my straight lines are curved and all my curved lines look like they were made with and Etch-A-Sketch

            Very nice. I can't tell, but it doesn't look "square". How are you going to frame it? With some backing??

            Again, nice work.

              going to mount it on a piece of stained and clear coated cabnet grade plywood, with a frame around the edges of the plywood. It will not lay flat but be mounted by 3 to 4 points around the edge of the stainless steel to the board. The bends in the stainless will give the picture depth and add to the reflective qualities of the steel once on the wall.

                    Very nice work, Jim! What's the minimum thickness of those lines you can cut with your plasma cutter?

                      Larry the 250ci is probably best with sheet metal. I have cut 1/8 inch but with the work I do with all the straight through penetrations, I suspect anything else but sheet metal (thin) would eat my tips up extreemly fast. This moves very fast with the sheet, but very slow on flat bar. The 250ci is a great little machine for what I do, but probably too small for heavy duty steel work. I need to buy some more tips but at $15.00 for the tip and electrode its a little pricey..

                        Jim,

                        I like the "frame". Especially because the piece isn't flat. Looks good!

                          Maybe I read it wrong but-JimYo, I think LarryL's question in regards to the minimum thickness was actually asking about the "width" of the lines of the cuts. I also am curious about the "width" of the lines you are cutting and how do you control them so thin? Great work you're doing. Thanks, David

                            the tip on the 250ci is almost worn (orifice is now larger) out so the cut lines are a little wide. Will get new ones shortly which will give me a smaller cut, and save the current one to use to when I want them this size as you see them. As for control, I draw my lines with a sharpie and hand cut on the lines..
                            Thanks for the comments..
