    I love this. I am going to make this for my welding class project. What are the dimensions of the supplies?

    Hi, I'm glad you like it :)
    I don't have it anymore (sold on charity auction), from what I remember:
    - base: M20 nuts
    - flower 1: M4 screws & oversized M8 washers, diameter ~10cm
    - flower 2: M6 & M8 nuts, diameter ~10cm
    - rose: diameter ~8cm

    Happy welding!

    Could you use soldering to hold the pieces together?

    I have never tried to solder steel, but I think it would be possible.
    Making the rose from copper sheet pieces soldered together would be quite easy.
    However, if you don't have access to the welder, I would consider using some two compound epoxy to glue everything.
