AK Fab Art

Hello from the Last Great Frontier

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm new (somewhat) to the metal arena, I was working on my A.S. in welding many years ago and decided to jump with both feet into metal artwork a few months ago after being laid off for nearly a year. I've always had an appreciation for metal work and sculpturing and now I get to give it a go! I've been doing the basic things for now (horseshoe crafts) but want to expand. I have Lincoln TIG & MIG machines, Thermal Dynamics plasma cutter, planishing hammer, dual burner forge on hand and a 70# Cliff Carroll Wide Face anvil on the way. I've seen a lot of cool work on here so far and feel a little embarrassed to show what I've done so far, because, I am still a newb. 

Look forward to gleaning some good info here. :-)

Welcome to the madness AK :) 

please share. We all start somewhere. And we love pictures here. Hey we want to see how you improve too.  

I know IFI and the great people on it have helped me a lot.

Thanks, I just posted a pic in the "sculpture" thread. I'm actually really busy right now prepping for the local bazaar which is a good thing, basic items are good. ;-)
