Welding

I made this stuff. You can buy them.


I weld all this stuff with an oxy/acetylene rig, using nothing but sheet metal, nails, and coat-hanger wire. I do it for fun, mostly, but it's also fun that people pay me for it.

I made a video of myself making my figurines, and it got picked up by Make Magazine Online. My figurines also recently went gold on the SomethingAwful comedy goldmine.

If you see something you like, please post a comment. I also make custom figurines/commissioned art, so feel free to ask about something unique.

COMPANION CUBE

Companion Cube, the size of a Rubik's Cube. Well, a little larger than a Rubik's Cube, but close enough.

This was a request for Beethoven.

I really enjoy making these larger pieces. There's so much room to add details, like crazy hair and vests.
