Not very exciting, but I make the small aluminum strip on the back edge of the rear wing for MSR. You can just barely see my piece in this photo...

Commonly called a wickerbill or a Gurney Flap....

One of the local female news anchors in town had me do several items for her house....

She wanted me to wrap her built in fireplace with 11 gauge (1/8" thick) hot roll steel.... If I remember correctly the metal shroud weighed close to 400 pounds. The metal was then sprayed with a semi-gloss clear lacquer to prevent the panels from rusting...

This is the rough drywall fireplace enclosure I had to work with.

After getting the steel cladding in her house and attached with some large socket head screws I fabricated just for this job.

Designed and made this custom sliding steel door and track for the anchorwoman's entertainment room....

Mesh at the top so it wouldn't change the room ventilation... Clear coated with a semi-gloss powder coat....

I was asked to contribute to a good cause in town. The Columbus Museum of Art will conduct an auction on Friday (tomorrow). The plan called for 15 Herman Miller chairs to be given out to 15 separate contestants to be modified in some unique way. The pieces would then be auctioned off to the highest bidder with proceeds going to the museum.

Started with a rudimentary sketch of what might be called a personal bar for a single individual....:cool:
The idea was to take a regular seating height chair and make it into a bar height seating structure.... Keep in mind, none of these submittals are to be taken too seriously.... More of a fun thing...:rolleyes:

Attachment 7070

A piece of white marble will fit the top framework.... This surface is for drink preparation and final resting place during consumption.... The small cutout and shelf will support and present two bottles of liquor...
