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.

Playing on Our Homemade Riding Toys

Today after I picked my son up from school we decided to go for a ride on our riding toys I built (see previous blog posts for details on them).  We drove around the farm pastures for a while then decided to run through the drainage ditch in front of the house which was full of water from all the recent warm weather melting the snow.  We had a great time and my son loved it.  The top three pictures are me and the bottom three pictures are my son (his pants are too short because he was wearing a pair of mine so he could get them dirty and he's at least 3 inches taller than me). I thought you'd enjoy seeing the toys in use!
