New York City – the way I will always remember it. There wasn’t a day that I was driving in and around the city that I didn’t look for the Two Towers, No matter where I was, I could always see them; I Always knew where home was. I can remember being lost in NJ about 40 miles from NY driving over a big hill and I would look for my towers to find my way home. That was before GPS of course! Now I just turn on my phone and say go home:)
I was in Brooklyn, working – on 911 we could hear the explosion, but could not see where it came from. I was listening to Howard Stern on the radio when he said the Towers were hit by a plain… nobody knew it was a jumbo jet. So I went to a pier in Brooklyn to see what was going on. That’s where I saw the Towers for the last time. After that I looked up at the Brooklyn Bridge and all I saw was thousands of people covered in white dust crossing over. I will Never Forget that Day…....
I Always wanted to do a carving of the City Skyline, So I downloaded some photos of the City, opened up my Rhino cad and started designing. It took me around 15hrs to make the models of the buildings. Then I had to place all the buildings where I wanted them. After that I sent it to my Rhino Cam software for my G-Code.
The wood is MDF, it was 1 1/2” x 40” x 15” This carving did not come the way I intended, but now I know what I have to do. The next one will be much better – not too bad for my first try.
