Sweat Shop in Downtown LA

That title applies to about every business located downtown LA so to fit the bill we decided to make my shop in to a sweat shop. Brie and I have been slaving over this project. This is one of my bigger projects in scale, I have done on my own.

We have been working 24/7 getting the light ready for Hatfield's ( check my old posts for more project details)

Between the sound of a sewing machine running non stop making fabric covers for the Hexs, you will hear the raw noise of a welder and grinders running building the frame work for the light...........

I havn't had much time to post much but here is some pictures before we get the light up in the air maybe tomorrow at Hatfields. I am excited to get the light out of my shop, its about the height and length of a dump truck. About 20 feet by 14 feet high, but only 6 feet wide. With 11 lights inside, over 50 yards of fabric, over 500 welds, over 100 yards of Velcro, 1000 feet of steel and A LOT OF TIME !!!!

I am close to sending the bill for this one.....................   GET READY 

With over 500 welds - Mig welding was the only choice
Quick and clean

Here is where it will hang
All the stuff in the center is gone now, just a big open room

Some times when you are short you use a booster seat
The biggest and most used book in the shop
