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.

Homemade Anvil

When I first made my forge, I did not have an anvil, so of course, I made my own. It weighs 312 lbs.
 I call it my "Poor man's anvil."

  1. Man would you and my husband get along! He slid sideways into metal work about the same way you did.

    He made his "poor man" anvil out of a chunk of railroad tie he found. It's got holes in the base so he can bolt it to the stand he made for it out of an I-beam.

    He finally let me talk him into selling some of the upcycled flowers he makes at
