    Lets see some projects, any

    This forum is getting a little bored these days. I'd like to see some of the recent project you guys did lately. it can be practical or decorative from home or on the job.
    With a little explaination of what was it about and why.
    Of coarse I'll start this one.
    This was a flat deck we put on our new delivery truck. Nothing fancy, it has to be stong enough to carry a load of bottles up right in the front and some heavy equipment parts and loads of steel.
    The frame is 5"x3"x3/8" with 3" channel cross member sitting on 6" channel
    deck is 6" t&g pressure treated Fir. The back end was form by our local A.J. Forsyth.
    My part in it was building the headach rack.

    Now come on dont be shy lets see those project can be as small as fixing the grand son tricycle and big as fixing the Hoover Dam

    Dan land, these gates looks great.
    Gate fabrication has always been on my mind.
    These gates must be worth a few dollars.

    This is my latest project, and it was actually my first paying gig. With a little luck this sort of stuff will fund my hobbies when I retire.

    These are cut free hand with a 375 x treme in 16 ga mild steel.
    Patterns were made the hard way, tracing the customers photo's with Ink Scape software.
    Printed to scale and cut out, made ready for tracing to the 16 ga.
    The outlines were traced with black sharpie and the straight cuts were done with a x acto knife then marked in black prior to cutting.

ID:	511720My attachments didn't end up where I wanted them, they are buried in the text. If I figure out how to reduce the file size of some of my other construction pics I will add them.

    One of my goofy projects - a nutcracker.
    Saw one in a store but decided to make one out of stainless at 10 times the cost.

    Bolt is 3/4-10 and parts are 1/4" plate.
    The ram is piece of 3/4 IPS pipe sliding fit inside a piece of 1" IPS pipe.

    Maybe I have too much time on my hands.

    we are two guys.
    it took 1 day to cut and prepare the pieces, 1 day to a assemble the stairs and 1 day for the railings. its actually 2 stairs of 5 feet wide to ease transportation. you would be surprised what we can do in one day.
    this was the end result once it was installed.

    I inherited my late father's toolbox and I always try to use some of his tools in any project I undertake; whether it be a wrench, a hammer or a file. If I'm building something for myself, I always try to incorporate a bolt, nut, cotter pin or a washer into the build. On this afternoon, I was looking to build a quick cigar holder and I found a thin, flat washer and a small piece of round stock. I brushed them off with a wire brush, bent the rod to a V shape, tacked them together and sprayed it with a hammered finish. The end result works perfectly with any ring gauge cigar that I happen to be smoking! I can always sit back and reflect on the all the good times I shared with my Dad!

    I'll get around to posting some bigger stuff later...
    These, are always the cool.
