This is a double sided 3D Texas star. It is fully welded around all sides. 3d star made with 14 ga steel. The flat ring really adds a great accent to the star. Your custom text can be cut from the flat ring but remember that it can only be viewed correctly from one side. Most customers prefer the small stars cut out around the ring. Looks great on gates, fences, and entrances because it can be viewed from both sides! These are not the flimsy tin stars made in Mexico or Sheetmetal shop. These are handmade in our shop.
