"Spider Web" Metal Sign
I thought your readers would like to see this one-of-a-kind "spider web" metal sign that I made. It's located next to the road in front of our house and has our street address on it, so first-time visitors have no trouble finding our rural home.
  The 8-sided sign stands about 3 1/2 ft. tall and is made out of 3/8-in. dia. rebar. I used four different length metal rods to build it, bending each rod to 22 1/2 degree angle to form a series of progressively larger octagons. Then I welded these octagon-shaped rods to four straight rods. A truck reflector serves as the hub and makes the sign easy to see at night. The street numbers are fixed to a piece of plastic.
  I'm an old carpenter but I love metal work, so this was a fun project for me. (Harry Scott, P.O. Box 1265, Walsenburg, Colo. 81089 ph 719 738-3847; email: rockworm80@msn.com)
