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.

Hand Hammered Metal Bowls

I made this hand hammered centerpiece bowl and candle bowls for my wife.  She uses the large bowl for fruit usually, but also has used it for holiday centerpieces.


I made this yard sculpture out of pieces of scrap metal.  We are letting it rust naturally.  It is an Abstract Scrap Sculpture which my wife named Abscrapture.

Simple Bird Bath

One day my wife mentioned that with all of the yard decor we have, there is no birdbath.  So I made her one!  I had a garbage can lid and I made a simple frame.  It works fine and it was made from metal and paint and a lid we had lying around.
