The Great Grate


D Vautier

We have a sunken window in back with a nice big culvert protecting it.  There was no cover for it so for the last 25 years I had a storm fence gate laid over it to protect us from broken legs and missing kids.  Today I got out a bunch of rebar and wired up a cover.  I talked my son Val into tig welding the bars together.  He also debured it and used his plasma cutter to whack off the ends.

 Here I bent up some rebar for the frame and tied it down with wire.
 Val got to work with his tig welder
 Finally a great grate.
