VERY nice! If you keep posting these I may have to dust off my welder as the big pipe makes a very cool base and leaves the focus on the beautiful top. Do you put anything under the cut edge of the pipe legs so it won’t eat the floor it’s placed on?

All the pipe edges are filed and sanded smooth to be kind to all floor surfaces.

Thanks Clint. I was thinking maybe a big wooden ‘plug’ in the bottoms?

A very interesting piece Clint and great imagination in designing and creating your project.

Is it for a customer or for a place in your house?

It’s in our home. I wonder if others might find the colors a bit extreme.
