I only started this little business earlier this year, but it’s been a busy first year so far!
It’s great to be busy making things, and because I make bespoke items, with every job I get a new challenge.
So, what have I been up to?
Well, one of my first commissions was this metal cigar holder.
After this I made a throttle position sensor adaptor.
This adaptor was for a MK 2 VW Golf throttle body set up for a customer of Race Dyno Tuning.
A customer contacted me about some machining work.
The job was to reduce the outside diameter of these 27 rollers by 0.02mm.
They are for a Victorian fairground ride.
For my next couple of jobs I got to work with some beautiful wood, which was great as I do love working with wood.
First up is a kitchen sideboard, to be used as a spice rack I believe.
It is made of oak.
A good friend of mine owns my local timber merchant, Kinsley Timber. I get almost all of my timber from here as I think it’s important to support small, family run businesses.
Anyway, Kinsley Timber pointed one of their customers in my direction and that lead to a commission for a pair of rollers for a mangle that was being restored.
They are made from some beautiful tulip wood.
Here are a few work in progress photos. You can see more photos and a couple of videos of me at work, turning these rollers on my Facebook page.
As soon as I’d completed my work on the rollers, they were sent back to the customer.
He has since completed the restoration of the mangle, and sent me this photo of it. Doesn’t it look great?
