Peach Baskets

I know I have not posted anything for a long time, but I was away for the past 8 days (Europe trip - work) and I just got home Tuesday night. Since I hadn't done my usual number of posts, several people e-mailed and asked if I was OK! I appreciate the concern for my well being.

Anyway - I'm back and work continues. Spent several hours today welding up the second peach basket .

Here's a good look at the inside ring. The weld has to be ground smooth yet.

Here you can see the two support pieces holding the peach baskets together.

Other than grinding and sand blasting, the basic peach basket structure is complete. The side pieces will be made next and the holes drilled.
Enjoy! Good to be home.
