Ligershark, you should come to the art show in August.

I am building a porcupine fish but I am still in the designing stage. I have most of the parts and even the parts for the spines but I still have to make each one individually and there will be about 70 of them. It may be very cool or a piece of scrap metal in my garbage. I am not sure yet as there are a lot of details to figure out.

I started building a steampunk porcupine fish. I am not sure how this will come out. I also ordered another 1920's telephone call box exactly like this one.
But I am not sure exactly what I am going to build out of it as nothing hit me yet.

Thanks, I may keep that one. I am going to price it around two grand and at that price I don't think it will sell, which is fine.

Great lamps Paul B!

I see gauges on many of them, is that for show? Or needed to operate?

Thanks

I just finished another lamp made out of a 1910 telephone call box. The red valve handle turns it on and the brass thing in the right rear is a vintage lawn sprinkler.
They keep moving the art show back so I will be selling some of these soon. Yesterday I got a call from my town and they want me to display them at an 800 persons Veterans event at a park on a beach here on Long Island. It should be fun.
