This project was created using expanded steel that was heated with oxyacetylene and shaped. It was welded to a 1" box tube frame that was attached to a pillow block and the lower support pipe. The pillow block allowed the globe to be turned during the show. There were also battery operated Christmas lights that covered the globe.
The project was done with a metal bender that we used to curve the outer support structure of the deck. Once the correct radius was created the pieces were cut out and then welded together. Next the deck was covered with expanded steel and welded it to the lower frame, next using an oxy/acetylene torch; I cut the expanded steel to match the frame. Finally the legs were welded to the frame. This project was a joint project between me and a coworker.
