Show Preview, Antique Bird
I was going for a bird a little out of the ordinary with this guy, he is only a few feet tall. I have been trying to use some of these door knob I have had laying around , they present a bit of a challenge for welding, so I encased the main plate with some antique harness rings to avoid welding right on the plate.
The base on this bird is apparently from an antique jack stand? I am not sure what the beak/face is. Also the door knobs and key plate are oldies. And of course the good old standbys rake tines, pulley chains and various farm parts. I am pretty happy with how he turned out.
