Here is one side of the finished project. Square steel pole, a steel circle from the bottom of the CNC, barrel sides, nuts, bolts, screws, and a pipe cap. Done!!!
The curve of the barrel sides work nicely on the square pole. the pole cap lends the perfect finishig touch. You just tap it on!
Here is a close up of my weld job. Im sure you all would have enjoyed watching me weld. Doug holding my hand and me squeezing the trigger. There is always a little screaming involved when I weld. 
Holes were drilled at the ends of each barrel side so they could be bolted together. After the holes were drilled the barrel sides were attached to the pole with a screw. The the nuts and bolts went through the holes.
Side view. Everyone needs a side view! The entire project, metal and wood was waxed and buffed!
The other side is for the hostess with extra energy. Shell help you find you chair if youre lucky!

I am getting ready for Vintage Marketplace at the Springfield Extravaganza and part of my job there is to come up with tabletop ideas. While visiting some very good friends of mine we uncovered some barrel sides which we thought would make excellent signs. Another excursion took me to another of my very good friends welding shop. Doug loves it when I crawl under his CNC machine to collect steel droppings from his cut-outs. It's a dirty job, but some one has to do it. Another part of my trip was to visit yet one more good friend to accomplish the stencilig. It's great having good friends!!!
