Disclaimer #1

I am a computer geek by trade, not a Professional Welder, Woodworker, Fabricator or Gas Plumber. I enjoy playing around with my equipment as a release from the pure mental effort it takes to do my job. I am predominately self-taught and as such I make a lot of mistakes. About one in every 20 of my welds looks great to me. The rest would make professionals cringe. In almost every project I spend about 25% of the time fabricating and the other 75% sitting around with friends discussing the best way to do the next step. I often just eyeball things and they come out crooked or totally dorked.

Over the last few years I have had the opportunity to work with Joshua Wood. Joshua worked with me in the garage and did some major work on my cook trailers. You can visit his welding site at: www.joshuametal.com.

Unlike Joshua who does metal work, his brother Dallas is true to the family name and does woodworking. You can see his website at: www.pensfromwood.com.
