I’ve been spending a lot of time in the shop welding these days!

With this piece, I welded three chipper blades together, attached some angle iron, and then welded it all to a brake rotor. I think this will be a base for a spiral wood lamp but we’ll see what happens!


Just had a wonderful time at the Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton, MA this past weekend! I was able to see some old friends and met a bunch of new people as well. I’m always stunned at the quality of the artists at this show. Though, when I have my own booth, I never have enough time to see what everyone else has created.
