Introduction: Seattle Space Needle Replica

Here are some pictures of the first 6 foot Space Needle replica I built and some pictures of me working on it. Like everything I do this was made with 100% recycled materials.
A very large majority of this was made from actual parts of the Space Needle. It would be easier to tell you what is not from the Space Needle. The bottom disc is from a farm plow, and the top is made from about 20 parts. The little screws are to represent people looking out. The top does spin too! Please let me know what you think.

Hey I am in Seattle too. I made one about 6 years ago, and gave it to a friend of mine in exchange for mechanical work in my car. I was on his shop on Rainier Ave. for a long time. Until someone stole it.

Sweet, now if you going to use it as a fire works platform for some neighborhood fireworks show you are cool.
