Looks like you have created the monster you set out to build, great job. Now you have what, 5 or 6 more to build?? The 100,000 visitor is knocking on the door, who will it be????

After you are finished, Terlingua should hire you to create the ARCH D'TERLINGUA.

Won't you just weld them onto the containers?

Looks as though you're arc is starting to resemble a certain famous bridge here in Sydney. :p

Great looking work, JW. I can't wait to see it in place.

Great truss, why not make the rest triangular (when looking at the end down the length)? Less materials, less build time, less weight to move. Granted I'm no engineer, but always like to save time, effort and $$$.

Allen Hare said...

When you first started the truss, I thought you'd make them triangular, also.

Very nice welding!
I hate to say this, but in a greenhouse environment these guys are gonna rust pretty quick. You might want to paint them. ...I know another step after all that work.....drats.....
Just a thought.
