This continues our report about a winter project for our construction and groundskeeping crew and volunteers, the renovation of the East Foundry Apartment access and surrounding landscape [see posts from 12/16, 12/18, 12/20, 12/23, 12/27, 12/30/2013 and from 1/3 to 1/15/2014].

Grounds keeping manager Ron Chandler and his apprentice Issac Mueske are bending the two railings for the curved part of the fence, not as easy as it looks, lots of strength applied.

A closer look at the bending fabrication unit “The Bender”, a device put together by sculptor Brent Scott, on staff in the Arcosanti maintenance department. 

Here are the two railings, upper and lower part.

In the next report we will see photos of their installation.
