Default I Make Things Out Of Metal...

I own a small custom metal fabrication shop that was started in the late 1800's...
Still in the same family that started it for the past 5 generations.... I run the business with my wife...

Thought I would share a few of the items we've made..

Very nice! That bar is cool. How long did something like that take? Do you do any automotive work?

Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan (girl in blue) opened the exhibit. My parts are all the wall mount and floor mount kiosks in the building.

Wonderful work, ... haaa, I now understand your member name here. I have worked in wood for ever and would love to work in metal now, which I kinda do. You must be proud of your work for sure. Love the shop. Want.

You're building a wing?! I respect your fabrication skills. I love watching TV shows where things get made. Every once in a while I get inspired and try to make something myself. I soon get reminded of my fists of ham then go back to watching TV.

Thanks Ricky...
The bar took about 1-1/2 weeks to make....

No automotive work, except a few things for my MINI....
