For our dinner tonight. We will be having Crab Louie salad. Yum!
No pictures of the real Crabs, sorry! Here's the almost complete horseshoe crabs I welded up. I had them sand blasted and then I pickled them in vinegar for a day. Sprayed them down with hydrogen peroxide and watched the magic! On bare metal you can skip the hydrogen peroxide, if it's damp out. The vinegar alone will make the metal rust overnight.
Next step will be to coat in Penetrol, then a coat or two of Varathane over that. Nobody likes rust bleeders on their furniture.
