Found this looking thru files. Retail store it-up from last year. Pre-fabed EMT 'decor', some of which is UL Labeled/Listed lighting fixtures!

I think next time I'm in the Mall...I have to see if this store is still there!

I wish I could have taken a picture of the "2000" bent in a single stick of 1/2" EMT. I was in a prison and no cameras.
This inmate managed to bend this, get wire in it and get it up in the overhead above the suspended ceiling without anyone noticing. I ended up being sorry I pointed it out. It would have been a conversation piece for years. They ripped it out while I was there. I at least hope it is in the supervisors office or his den. It was a thing of beauty.

I know how you feel about that Greg. Many times I did not have a camera on hand (Before smartphone days).

Some locations have a 'no picture' policy, or sometimes time does not permit.

Back in the day, I came upon a 'wheel' made from 2" EMT on a jobsite that another EC was working in for the tenant. It looked perfect, sitting on the guys gang box. It was about the diameter of a Peterbuilt steering wheel.
