  Inspiration for Art Tree Initial proposed design              
                   
Design        
  Scale study                
                   
Maquette        
  Maquette   Maquette with proposed symbols placed Rust finish          
                   
           
  Symbols attached to the tree will be powder coated.                
                   
Fabrication        
  CNC Plasma cutter work       Magnetized drill press        
                   
Space - CNC plasma cutter work        
  Workspace - Bill J. Priest, Corinth street, Dallas Workspace Tree panels welded together   CNC plasma cutter creates tree panels        
                   
Tree panel assemblage          
  A segment of tree panel - 14' x 4' Segment of tree panel Tacking temporary supports to hold tree panels Positioning tree panel to weld          
                   
More Tree panels        
  Tree panels supported to be welded Forklift used to move tree panels - The entire tree will weight 8,000 pounds              
                   
Base          
  A sample of tree panels are used to figure placement on base. Tree base is cut on CNC plasma cutter. Bolts are placed in base to create form. Bolts are used to assemble the final tree.
