It is finished!!! It took some time, got sidetracked with some other obligations, but the helix is finally complete. Here it is in all it's glory:
Here is a pic taken at a wider angle, showing how it fits into the benchwork:
6 and 2/3rds total loops, each one gaining 2.5". It comes out 2 5/8" above the main level benchwork. After I get my shoulder popped back into it's socket from patting myself on my back, it will be time to start building the main level framework. You can see how high it will be based upon the two strips I've already mounted behind the helix on the walls.
Sawdust Making Part II will start this Friday!
