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 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.

Just saw this photo
It brings back memories of a place I worked at several years back
I don't think I will ever forget him
Earl would run EMT in every way imiginable .
I spent months ripping out runs he had made and make new ones
His wiring was a thing of beauty as well.
He would put a J box about every 30 ft. need it or not .They were there for future
connections .
I have a few photos but off hand do not know where they are

Oh yeah, he is the same guy that ran out of gas once with one of those little one man planes
and had a wing fall of once that landed him in a lake.
