Sliding back in to it Monday morning. Simple guard rail w/ trick details. Flat bar pass thru the base plate to be tig welded on the underside to hide all the welds. Makes assembly a snap as well. Thanks @w2macfabatx for the 5-axis waterjet goodness. @warrinerconstruction @jaycorderarchitect #austin #steel #fabrication #guardrail #handrail #5axis #waterjet #clean #smarternotharder

So ... while we were worried about the hurricane, experienced our first earthquake. Big one hit off the coast and shook the shit out of the buildings here. Minor damage around us and more personally shaken up than anything. So thankful for the early warning system and the building residents that woke up @curiositypiqued and Frank and got them out. I was couple blocks away with @michaelambrosewalsh catching up. Terrifying run through the dark with glass crashing down from above to get back to my girls. #mexicocity #earthquake #stillhuricanekatiaontheway #travel #stillvacation #shakennotstirred

Monday rounds. Stopped by Tether to collect straps and check out the fresh slab. Time to stand up some more columns after a little cure time. That view out the back over the green belt is pretty awesome. @baldridgearchitects @pilgrimbuildingcompany #austin #architecture #construction #fabrication #structural #steel #rediron #welding
