A nice lady asked me if I could make a birthday present for her husband who was out of town traveling on business...

Turns out he is the chef in their family and likes to cook....

They live in an older home and she wanted an "Art Deco" swinging door leading into the kitchen.... Oh, and it had to have a glass port hole....

We "quilted" the front and back surface of the door by hand with 20 gauge #4 brushed finish stainless steel...

We whipped this together in two days and she had a carpenter install it, all before he came back from his business trip in time for his surprise birthday party.... They were very happy with the result...

Made a "Origami" style reception desk for a local art museum earlier this year out of 1/4" thick steel, then had it powder coated... The shelves on the wall are mine too...

^^^ Thanks guy's...

A lady in the village asked me to make a copper hood with a SS filter / fan / light assembly. These are pre-made factory liner inserts by Vent - A - Hood and we insert them into our hoods.

Poor picture of the completed copper hood in my shop... All of the copper bars were 1/4" x 2" electrical copper buss bar that got a hammered finish by hand (this step was really time consuming and I probably won't do that again)....

She wasn't happy with the "newness" of the copper..... She wanted it to be old looking.... So a muriatic acid wash was applied followed by a satin clear coat to seal in the look.

Here you can see the Vent A Hood insert..... The SS rod "Tool Hangers" are mine....

Thanks Andrew....

I've been working with Limited Brands here in Columbus (headquarters).... Made these wall benches and tables for use in their employee eating lounge... I'm very fortunate that they are starting to remodel several new locations that will use my work as well....

In early June of last month I got to work with a local restaurant here in town. They wanted some unique planters and a pass through bar window for the outside patio seating area....

I was given a free reign in the design and construction.....

Finished construction out of 1/8" galvanized steel in my shop...

Set in place on the patio wall...
