#48 PULLEY CIGAR BOX HOLDER
After toying with this piece for a few weeks and not being able to finish it because I couldn’t weld it together, I was finally able to complete it. Using an antique pulley, a cigar box, piping and other random items, it has become a visually interesting and very well balanced table top holder.
Mapping out the design, although I wasn’t sure it would balance.
…was going to add another wheel for weight, but it became too visually busy, I didn’t like it so it had to be toned down.
…no second wheel, but adding a second vertical element to stabilize it might have worked, but it was still too complex and ended up taking away from the over-all design.
…I liked the vintage look and color of the cigar box, but didn’t really like the quality of the wood.
…the parts prepped and ready to weld.
…two identical cigar boxes. The light color box is the original look, the darker box was burned with a MAP torch to get the color/texture I wanted.
…ready for final assembly.
…the completed piece.
Thanx for viewing.
