    Default 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

    Default Bumper

    This is a bumper I made for a Dodge 2500 diesel sport. Made out of 2" sch-40 Bolted to the front frame, where it goes in the light holes there is a little brace 1 1/4" x 3/16 bolted to the end cap and to the frame.
    The guy came back to the shop and told me that he already hit a small deer on the corner " lucky " and no damages.
    Took about 7 hours total. Bill was around $700.00.
