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.

AJ's Modified Lawn Mower

This started out as a lawnmower we bought in 1997 when we lived in Florida.  We brought it to NY with us and used it for a couple of years here.  After I had a problem finding replacement parts for the rear pulley, I took the original motor from it and put it in another mower that I now use.  I took the body of this old mower and made a "buggy"  for my 15 year old son.  Now we can ride on our modified mowers together out in the pastures and down by the pond.
