Rooster was a challenging piece for me.​ I was able to create the head/neck with relative ease, but figuring out the body wasn't as easy. The struggle I found was being able to create a strong, proud stance while maintaining the ability for the piece to stand on it's own, without the need of welding the feet to a flat base.

Rooster was created with drill bits, saw blades, a garden rake, rebar scraps, horseshoes, a tow hook, tent stake, barn hinges, brake springs, garden shears and other bits whose origins escape my mind.
