Then over a period of two days the crew applied the fibreglass reinforced concrete and skillfully sculpted it. The large drum perched on the top is made with 'wood' panels with big 'steel' bands holding it all together. Underneath is an enormous stump. We tried sculpting a new bark technique with great success. It will be allowed to cure until next week and then the painting process will begin.
Tomorrow we'll pull the giant steel plate off the top and begin building the frame of the next section. Because it was accurately plasma cut on our MultiCam CNC we know it will fit perfectly with all the other pieces when we are done. It will not be assembled until it gets to the final site.
