Creating a Stegosaurus

Even though my first project (the Iris) isn’t done yet, I couldn’t wait to get started on my next project: a Stegosaurus skeleton. Tonight I bent the half-inch rebar that will be the spine, and got the rough elements together for his legs:

The bony plates along his back will be done in three-eighth inch stainless steel, so as the rest of the skeleton ages and gets that cool patina effect, the plates will remain shiny and bright.

I’ve got the plates drawn out onto my stainless steel sheet, so next class all I have to do is cut them on the plasma cutter and then grind them down.
