    Yeah, I think I like them up too. They look perky that way, like a pup with his ears up!

    I like the analogy, pup with his ears up.

    I was thinking down until I actually had them on a frame, then agree with the up votes as well.

    How did you bend those bars? Did you use a torch? Looks very cool.

    Filled them full of sand, masked off the ends to keep them that way. Then used the vise, a 2" pipe and a 1" pipe, heated about a 4" wide patch (rose bud with oxy/acetylene), and used the 1", to bend the bars around the 2". Slow cool, so less brittle.
