Default Coffee Pot Project

A while back I was asked to fabricate a model of a local town's water tower, which resembles a coffee pot. The scaled model was going to be sold at a town fund raising campaign so they could actually move the old water tower to a new location.
Here is the actual water tower
Here are some fabrication pics
A weld shop did the legs and railing
And finally the paint job was done...not sure who did it, but they did a awesome job.
It was a tedious job but was fun
