Thanks...

Lots of enjoyment making custom "one off" metal pieces from scratch.....

I get a lot of referrals through word of mouth when I do work for restaurants...

Just this week I was contacted by a client who wants to put in an ice cream shop in Chicago....

I find it interesting that this happens since I don't even have a business web site....

I'll soon be involved with two new local restaurants. One wants all of the store fixtures made from 1/2" steel rebar.... Should be an interesting project....

When your work is selling itself, you know you're doing it right. I know I've said it before, but your work is metallic art. You make it look easy, and I know from the tiny but of metal fab I've done that you are an expert craftsman. I wish I had some work for you to do for me. Maybe when I retire and build a house...

I'm currently building something out of metal... in my crappy little garage. I'm embarrassed of the final finish, but it's all me, baby. haha. I'll post a picture when it's done.

It's an ash tray... but really. It's an ash tray for my Chiminea. Goes in the bottom and slides out so that I can dump the ash instead of vacuuming in all out.

My welder decided to stop working right as I went to do a test weld and that was it. So I had to resort to rivets. If I can get the welder working again, I will go back and weld it all together. I know it's crude, but this is the result of a pair of snips, a hammer, a bench vise, and my knee. Haha
