Welding Complete on Test Greenhouse

On Saturday 12.18.10 the Greenhouse Challenge group completed welding of the test greenhouse structure.  Bill Hess directed the cutting, grinding and assembly.  Three sheets of glass melting are complete and the panes measure approximately 20 inches X 20 inches wide.  On the third sheet, the team attempted a higher temperature melt however the kiln topped out at 1900 degrees F, not hot enough to attain the clarity levels we hoped for.  Pictures from of the glass and steel assembly are blow.  The steel structure is an octagon and is approximately 2 feet wide.
