Here are a few photos of thing I have built for folks. For several years I did this full time and really enjoyed it. Have been thinking of "doing it again" on the side, so figured I post a few, and see what y'all thought. Sorry for the photo quality, most are shop photos, but some taken by designers, as I was not allowed to have a camera in most of the homes I worked in. I have many other photos if you guy's would like to see more. Everything I make is "custom" and hand cut with a plasma, no CAD, punch press ect tra. Here is a small, quick sample. BTW, Thanks to Dogcatcher for your thoughts.



Mica Sconce set


Coat/hat racks (made tons of these in Colorado)




Bow/Gun rack

Thank you Pink!

Here are a few more. The table where taken by the designers at the studio, either at the residence or in their holding area. You'd fall over if you knew what those tables sold for! I didn't supply the rock tops, they had those custom cut in Taos NM, or order them from Italy. The "wedge" coffee table was strange to make, but that was what the client wanted so.....





Wedge table in the home.


This one took me 2 solid weeks (I tend to be picky) Here it is sitting waiting ffor the client to come fromAspen to inspect it.

I absolutely love the Gun/bow rack. I actually like all of it very much. How much would one of the gun/bow rack set me back. Also my wife would like to know how much a coat/hat rack would be with a deer seen instead of the elk. All of the pictures are awesome, great work

That's nearly as nice as Chickenman's work.

But really, by hand? Dang nice.

Thanks again guy's. I sure do appreciate it. I could elaborate how much y'alls opinions mean, but I cant "bite the hands that fed me" prior.. Means allot

Sneaky, yes all by hand as far as the scenes go, I either draw out the scene or use photos given to me and draw them out, then cut the steel by hand to make what ever it is I'm working on. The most tedious part I have found, it making lamp shades, that's why they are so expensive generally. (Even cheap ones in stores are expensive?) Working with thin hide or mica can be a challenge.

I was never "high production" and found that is where the value is for actors, politicians, music people and just "plain rich" folks and the rest of us normal people LOL. Custom hand made and signed, seems to be important. I could try to make matching pieces and they'd be close, but never exact. grin up

Radical1, I will send you a PM, as for now I haven't been up to date on steel prices, but what ever I can come up with, I would do for every THF'r that was interested in something..Plus, I have to make sure I don't violate a THF rule. PM on the way.
