The largest thing I have ever built

This structure made from square 6061 aluminum tubing is 16 feet tall. I welded it up for Rope partners, a company that services wind turbines. This is to be a trade show display with a t.v. monitor and a covering of graphics. There's about $ 1,500 worth of tubing in this monster.
As you can see, It all breaks down and fits in the back of this not particularly large truck. There's a lot of un-bolting to do in the dis-assembly. It took three of us about 20 minutes to get it all apart. This project has been in my shop almost a week but it is gone now and I'm back to just bikes.
