Creating something new is always a learning experience. I have learned I am not meant to be a furniture maker. Our dining room has a weird alcove that must have been designed to be a closet or bar. Having a little spare time and steel, I decided to make a cabinet to fit in the space and give us a spot for our glass fountain. I measured, re-measured and started cutting and welding. As always, the piece got heavier as it grew. The finished cabinet is 46" tall, 57" long and 27" deep. Moving it out of the shop, across the gravel driveway, up the steps into the house and finally to the dining room was not fun. Our dollies were not big enough or wouldn't roll on the gravel. We only tipped it over a couple of times. When we finally got it in place we realized that the one thing I hadn't checked was whether or not the walls were plumb! They weren't even close. The piece wouldn't fit, we were about 3/16 shy even after the fudge factor I had allowed. My husband had several suggestions of how to fix the problem (including taking the piece back to the shop, which was not going to happen!). I am not known for my patience. Ignoring his ideas, I got a hammer and started removing dry wall. We slide the piece in place and I patched the exposed dry wall corner. It is not moving in our lifetimes. I tiled the top with glass tile and Phil installed track lights to highlight the glass. If I ever do any more furniture it will be free standing works! Lin

I just finished up this fossil mount for a client.  The ammonite fossil slab is about 22'x28"x3" and weighs a bit over a hundred pounds, I would guess.  The size and weight made designing a wall mounting system a bit of a challenge, but I finally decided to mount it much as though it was a big precious stone set in a piece of jewelry.  The prongs are silicon bronze and the remainder is stainless steel, as it is mounted on an outdoor gallery wall and has to be rust proof.fossilfossilfossil mountedfossil mounted

I am looking for someone to make me a stainless steel piece & willing to pay for it.

I am NOT looking to buy wholesale,  I am NOT looking for gold, I am NOT looking for silver, I am NOT looking for titanium, I am NOT looking for platinum.  

 

I am looking for someone to duplicate/create/design/make an exact replica of a necklace I have out of stainless steel.  It holds my dad's ashes and polishing is busy work that produces mediocre results.  I want stainless steel.  This necklace hasn't left my neck in 6 years and looks like junk now.  I have stainless steel rings that haven't been polished, maintained or upkept in over a decade and still look like the day I bought them.
