    I've been making these off & on for about a year. Made only 5 to date. All hand cut, heated, shaped, twisted, hammered and TIG welded.

    first one I made, got an idea and went with it:

    DSC_0552.

    DSC_0556-1.

    DSC_0553-1.

    2nd one:

    DSC_0005-1.

    DSC_0006.

    DSC_0011.

    did this one a month ago, wanted to challenge myself. Was harder to shape than it looks:

    DSC_4216.

    DSC_4234.

    and I made these this weekend. My wife wanted straight & simple ones. The taller one I made yesterday, the smaller one today. She wants to make them rusty, so the tall one spend a few hours in the rain.

    DSC_4214.

    DSC_4223.

    DSC_4252.

    signed & dated:

    DSC_4249.

    DSC_4251.

    I love your tagline under your avatar. Which begs to ask a question. Shouldn't that be our collective goal as bassists? You've now made me a more driven and goal-oriented bassist!:D

    Oh, your work is awesome!
     
  7. Wonderful mad skills you have there, sir.
     
  8. Very nice!! what are you using to twist the bar stock?? I know that guys who make damascus steel often use a pipe threader for twisting.
     
  9. Was it Eastcoasteddie in the kitchen with a candlestick?

    I made my own tool to grab then end of the bar & twist it while heating with a torch; one section (about 1"-2" long) at a time.
