Default Metal work, not quite a hotrod

I posted a picture already, but here is a quick video of the project. I used 16 gauge hot rolled, and a tree stump, a hammer, an English wheel, a planishing hammer, and a mig welder to make this Lion for the local Lions Club. I thought you guys might like to see how it went together.

Then I built a frame work to hold it all together.
