Rowing the Atlantic

| | | |

I am planning to row the Atlantic solo in 2013.
I want to fund the row myself and use the 3000nm trip to raise money for fresh water wells in countries where the need is desperate.
The only way I can raise the 100k needed for such an adventure is to do what I do best ...make metalwork.

miami stairs

This is a progress shot ....after two years of forging I am finally getting everything in place in Miami ...should have chosen a cooler time but I get to see some great thunder storms ...will try to post more as things come together.


help with sliding gate please

|

Hi everyone,
I need some help please .....
As you know my gates are rarely regular in shape and a horizontal line is pretty rare ...I have a client who wants her gate to slide rather than turn automatically. I am so used to using hydraulic boxes that will turn just about any shape that I weld to them that I have never given any thought to sliding mechanisms.


remember those handrails ?

| |

Everything is in place in Liverpool ....just have to cover the original tops that were made for a wooden handrail
All the center knots in the panels were made on site with whoever came in to visit on site .... knots made with the help of the people of Liverpoolknot balconies: knots made with the help of the people of Liverpool


An interesting challenge

|

Some time ago I made 80 balconies for a community center in liverpool ...I think I posted something because I had all the local people help make knots for the center details.
At the time they wanted wooden handrails so I left that with them.
