Much of the detailing-work in the construction of Arcosanti is performed on-site.
Cabinets, trim, fixtures, lighting, and railings, to name a few, are all elements
which are fabricated in the various shops. The reuse of materials in these fabrications
is always desirable, as well, and is an example of frugality in practice. In this photo, current workshopper, James
Davenport, who has opted to spend his time in the Metalshop cuts apart some scrap
metal to obtain pieces which will be welded into a railing. Photo and text by
