About Me

I started fabricating things out of metal when I was very young. My dad raced stock cars and swamp buggies and I got my start welding at age 13 while learning about motors and racing. By 13 I was also racing stock cars. Over the years I built and raced stock cars, swamp buggies and mud boggers. I have made many things for myself and others such as utility trailers, bridges, and sculptures. I worked as a welder for only 1 year of my career making car hauler trailers. For most of my career I was a plasterer in Florida. After moving to upstate NY I worked in a variety of jobs in the construction field. I have only started exploring the artistic side of metal fabrication during the past five years. We started the metal business in 2006 to take my career in a different direction. It will take a while, but my plan is to fill this blog with pictures of many of the things I have built over the years. I hope you enjoy seeing some of my unique creations. My wife is actually writing this blog for me but she is presenting it from my standpoint with the information I give her. I am more skilled with a welder than a computer.

Abstract Wall Hangings from Scraps

These pieces were made out of some scrap metal pieces just cluttering up my shop.  We sold the top piece at a craft show. It was several levels and the dimension made it interesting.  My wife wanted to keep it and I told her she could keep it if we didn't sell it at our next show.  She raised the price by about $30 on it thinking it would ensure it wouldn't sell.  It seems that the higher price was what we needed.  Someone bought it along with several other pieces!
