Anniversary coming up in a few days, wife loves owls, a lot. I figured she'd like to have a real life barn owl, made from some actual old barn metal! Pretty tricky getting any of this old dirty stuff to take the tiniest weld but I think it came out pretty neat

Yep, I've been down the galvanized road before, I'd stayed below the smoke since it was on a stand and I was on a stool. I tried tigging a spot and even at 20 amps the metal just disappeared lol

How do you have his feet attached to the wood? You can run a couple screws in the log then tack to it

That's a great idea, didnt even think of that. Feet are just bent just right, took forever. Attachment is via rebar glued into the wood and then welded to the piece of rebar the whole thing started with, which is also the back "leg" of the whole thing.

You could make em with the head/eye holes a little bigger then it would be a bird nesting box.... purty sporty brother!!!! Can't wait to start additions in my shop and start wood working and welding again!!!
