After getting laid off my job as a welder with the TEREX Company last November i decided to start my career in the art world. I have been making sculptures since i learned to weld! This summer i went to The Concrete Countertop Institute, to learn to work with concrete, and have been mixing the welded art with concrete work to make some interesting pieces. I have been featured in a galley In East Lansing near Michigan State University, and have participated in a few art Festivals. I will be In the Great Lakes Art Fest coming up in October. Let me know what you think of some of my Art!

Chess Table Project
Attached are pics of recent project, a theme chess table. It combines welding, forging, and some tile work. There are four icons set in rings on each side of the table. The rings are bent over the anvil, butt welded and rounded out on a cone mandrel. There is King (HR steel with gold leaf), Queen (hammered brass), Knight (SST), and Rook (HR steel, wire brushed). The icons were cut to a sketched pattern. Features were cold chisel and then hot chiseled. Each icon was dished to give it some shape in a hardwood block with a large wood mallet. The legs are one inch square bar that are textured and twisted. The ends of the legs are drilled to accept plastic bushings and a threaded glide for adjustment. The scrolls are fish tailed at the ends and hot wound on a scroll jig. The top is held in place by an angle iron frame. The top is 5/8 plywood with commen ceramic tiles glued on and then grouted. Since this was fun I am considering doing other theme tables. So here goes my first pic upload.Bill
