Nice job on the spine and cages. Someday I will have to attempt that for myself, I hope it turns out as nice as yours. Looking forward to seeing more.

I'm replacing cross members with small diameter rod.

Default Rebuilding the spine

Thank you corwe-t!
I 'm sorry for late update. I am worried about whether I will rebuild the spine.
After thinking long and hard, I decided to rebuild the spine.
Changes are as follows.
1. to narrow the spine's width.
2. replace the cross members to more small diameter ones.

I believe that the looks could be improved.
