I'm too poor to travel on planes.

I'm actually going to sand it down and use it as a letter opener at work.

make sure you put a little red stain on the edge before you bring it in.

A quick one or a competition grade (like the one pictured)?

A quick one can be done in a day. Competition may take a week, depending on what commission orders he has.

He has also done dogs (commission) and a steer (competition piece for a purchase award). He also has been getting into incorporating snakes in his pieces. One recent piece, titled "Green Awakening" (click for pictures), has an emerald tree boa, and his current piece in progress has a copperhead.

Great work with the lathe work! Also, the detail on the birds is unreal.

I used to do aluminum work on buggies. Now I just work on friends cars. Here is one buggy body I made.

That looks like it would be ridiculously fun.

It was fun! He has since sold it. It lives in Kansas now somewhere. Here is another picture that shows a bit more of the engine.

That's really cool.

I'm impressed with the talent of some of the posters (and their dads!) in this thread.

Nice thread, I will post some up shortly. I am a metal shaper and fabricator by trade. I work at a high end car shop. I do quite a alot of restorations, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, and other projects also. These are all my daily projects.

Ferrari Daytona, missing a door pull cover, made a new one


Ferrari NGT, needed new aluminum restrictor tubes.




A vehicle I am working on right now. This is how we received it.





This is the work in progress.





Gauge layout after I finished the dash, yes they are paper. haha





Customers Roadster, they wanted a new hood with a scoop. There you go.





Ferrari 250 adjustable headrest





1969 Ferrari 330GTS, fender was screwed so I cut it off. then I used what metal was still original and good to recreate a new proper fender.




Ferrari California, Hit something. These Fenders are about $9k from Ferrari. So I fixed it.





I love metal work. If I had time I would post more. Thanks for this cool thread.
