Welcome to my Etsy page. I couldn’t think of a catchy handle by myself for my new Etsy account. My wonderful wife already had her Etsy name...

I like to use recycled materials, not only is this enviormentaly friendly, I think the "imperfections" in the steel give the work character.
I will sometimes take a trip to the scrap yard to find some work. Sometimes I find my work by chasing down a junker in his truck and working out a deal for a nice piece of steel, or sometimes I will be driving down the street and in an alley a rusted piece that someone just through out of their garage will catch my eye and next thing you know I will be strapping it to the top of the family mini-van.

I have started a blog, www.junkdaddysmetal.blogspot.com check it out!!!
I’ll do custom work also, if you have an idea of something you would like, let me know and I’ll see if I can help you out.
