Well my second attempt at this went well. Learned more and how to do it better!

It's all made from hand bent and welded rebar...100%!

66 pound beast that scores 190.25"...freaking huge!

How many hours in it

That is another cool piece.  I'm not sure I have the artistic eye to make something like that.

Thanks all!

I think I would like to possible sell these. The hard part is figuring out what to charge to be fair to me and give a fair price!

I paid attention to the materials this time but the hours are still tricky as I do them in chunks here and there whenever I can!

Thanks for the kind words!

It scored 190.25" gross and weighed in at around 66 pounds on the bathroom scale....beast!

The first one I made weighed 34 pounds.

What would be an interesting idea if you haven't considered it yet is make a full set "mounted" to the skull plate....all fab'd metal of course.

I just bought a new bow yesterday 1st new bow in 10 years. Going Elk hunting in 3 weeks!

I am broke for a while, or I would make a bid.

Thanks all.

It took 5 one pound spools of flux wire, one 10 pound spool (I converted to 10 pound spools) and about a 1/4 of the next ten pound spool....ball park 17-18 pounds of welding wire!

OK SMOKEPOLE
Lets figure out a price and shut up the ones that think they want one.
Figure out the price and start an auction or best offer. Tell them to post the amount over your starting price.
See how that goes, you don't come across a Beautiful piece of work like that every day.
