Quadropuss

The quadropuss is yard art made from mild steel. A design was drawn in Fusion360. That was loaded into the laser and cut from 1/4" MDF and plywood to be used as templates for each part. The templates were clamped onto sheets of mild steel. A plasma cutter was used to cut the sheet metal. A couple hours with a grinder and they were ready for steel rods to be MIG welded on so that each piece can be inserted into the ground and stand on it's own. I plan on promoting a moderate amount of surface rust before neutralizing it and painting with clear coat for long term protection against further weathering.
