Welding Wednesdays: I’m a real fan of your work!

Last week Maurice asked me to send him a picture of the tail fin from my favorite airplane, so I sent him this:

my favorite airplane, the boeing 787 dreamliner

I would love to fly on it someday, hint hint!!

Then he started sending me these pictures:

hmm, what to build next?

first things first.

these go on the top and bottom.

clamping them together in preparation for welding

What is it? Well, turns out Maurice really likes the windmill my parents have in their backyard, so he decided to build one for us! School credit + garden decor = score!

the first louver goes on

...then the rest

So at what point does the 787 Dreamliner come in?

any guesses as to what this is? 🙂

that's right, the tail fin from my fave 787 is going to be the tail fin on the windmill!

the tail fin being welded together

then the tail fin gets sanded and polished

I’ll be sure to share the rest as it comes together. Maurice sure is clever!
