In the past two years ive learned enough about metalwork, welding and construction  to make furniture for my own house as well as making tables etc for selling. I can not describe to you the feeling that gives me. Im not telling you this to brag or…

I have to get up at 6:15 every morning to take Lilly, our American Bulldog out when its all quiet and more importantly mostly dog free. Lilly always reacts with barking and jumping with other dogs as she wants to play as she ia…

You Have To Start Somewhere!

Everything you do needs practice! Unless you are a naturally gifted human that can understand all concepts of a process all at once then practice is the only way to learn. I know, im sorry i dont have any fastrack suggestions. Someone asked me to make a Darth Vader wood burner as they were and are all over the internet at the time.

The thing i love the most is this: Its amazing to get an email like this. I…

Its not all hard work! Luck plays a part to!

Its not all hard work! Luck plays a part to!

In all things you need lady luck to stand next to you a few times to get the ball rolling.  Then again can you make your own luck?  How do you decide what to make? Well i started out with what people suggested i make after my initial wheel stove design. I needed something i thought was simple to start me off. Obviously i knew nothing at all when i first picked up a welder but i did what we all do…
