Fantastic - I am very happy with all purchases and can truly recommend BilletMetalCrafts works to any enthusiast or collector of "kinetic hand sculptures" / spinners. Artistic works presenting unique shapes and made with outstanding machining precision! Thank you!

Experimenting with patina on brass

About

I have been working as a machinist for 25 years. I started out sweeping floors in a friend's shop and I was absolutely fascinated with the ability to work metal into any shape. I started an apprenticeship while I was still in high school.

Eight years ago, my wife and I started our own shop. We make lots of parts for VW Vans and diving equipment.

Along the way, I have made some one-off pieces for custom cars. Some projects allow me to exercise a little more artistic license.

Now I am trying something new to keep it interesting. The items I am selling here allow some creativity, but they are also therapeutic for people who need to keep their hands busy. My three-year-old son loves things that spin. I am learning that he is not the only one!

I hope others enjoy these pieces half as much as I do.

I am always open to trying something new. If you have an idea or suggestion, send me a message and I may be able to try it out.

Thanks for looking at my page!
