Build Rocky Pond Christmas Displays
We have received several scale sketches for potential
displays at Rocky Pond, courtesy of Ali Peace, who is a good
friend of Tom's who just believes in the mission of Rocky Pond
Christmas. Be sure to find her on Facebook thank her. She normally
charges big money for her ideas, let alone her art.
Her drawings are for fanciful, cartoon-esque pictures intended to be
made out of 5/16, 3/8 or 1/2" steel rod. The steel needs to be painted
for durability, then lights will be attached to the frames. We would
like all this work done in Belleville so that future generations can
say, "I built that!" "My dad built
that!" "Our Community built that!" "Those are manufactured right here
in Belleville!" "I work at the Christmas displays factory!" "I
volunteer with the Christmas display every year because it makes so
many people happy!"
Click each link to see the sketch. They are drawn to
scale. Each box can be one foot or two feet, so the display pieces will
be four or eight feet in size.
Once welded together, the welder will have to add pieces to give each
piece stability, and a way to stand it up (either stab it into the
ground, or make a stand.
Taller pieces will need loops to which guy wires can be attached.
Every piece we build should be spec'd out so that it can be easily
repeated (duplicated) for future use. We can sell the pieces in order
to raise funds for expanding Rocky Pond Christmas.
