Got it finished up this morning! Wanted to start 2018 on a good note. Lol. Sure miss Jerry on here for sure. He's definitely been an inspiration in my work recently. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Well I went and did it. I love the fixture. It took some time to set up. Had an idea to set up the radius. Failed many times. Talked to my side kick Mike about some ideas. Tried it again that morning. Failed. Then a light bulb went off. Tried it and bam. Frame was set up and locked down in about 10min.
I also got to try out a new cutter from Dave at Evolution. It cuts 10 lines per pass and saved major time. I babied every cut just going slow so it took time. Then the set up for the horizontals and it was pleasant.
I was in love with the over runs but the customer asked for a raised look. There's still some clean up but it was close enough for pics. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
