I made a tulip. I'd forgotten how gross welding with used horseshoes is. The garage smells like a horse stall with a side of tar. 😷

I have the honor of being selected for Maker’s Mart which is being held on May 7th from 10a to 8p at 1717 Adams Street in Toledo (Handmade Toledo).

Maker’s Mart is a juried art show and gathering of local makers that are selling their creations.

My table will have several different welded goodies from tulips made from Amish horseshoes to animal magnets made out of sockets to little motorcycles made out of nuts and bolts to clocks made out of wrenches.

I’ll also be bringing a few one-off items including a planter made of 4″ pipe, a couple of unique cigar ashtrays, and a praying mantis made out of nuts and bolts.

I’m looking forward to the show, and I hope to see you there!

Late Snow

April 9th, 2016


This weather is really getting in the way of trying out my new tires.

We had 8″ of snow overnight which happened to be the most snow accumulation from one storm all Winter.

Rather than be down about it, I took a walk through Side Cut Metropark and captured some photos. The link to the photoset is below.

The best part of the Metroparks during cold weather is the fires that they have burning in the shelter houses.

There is a warm-up forecasted for next week, so here’s hoping we’re riding soon.

New Treads

March 30th, 2016

Shiny new treads on the V Star. I’m ready for temperatures to stabilize, and then we’ll be riding like crazy.

Knucklehead Motorsports did a great job getting the new tires on and giving my bike a once over. If you are in NW Ohio, check them out. They are located near Toledo Express Airport next to Loma Linda’s.
