Show Me The Metal: From Scrap Heap to Art


One of the wonderful things about this industry is the amazing things that people do with metal. I ran across Guy McIntyre’s story out there on the internet. My favorite quote from the article is a little further down– in other words you’ll have to click to read the rest of the article, but I’ll share it with you: “I believe if I can’t make it I don’t need it.”

This guy uses any kind of metal he can get his hands on, from the hub of a snowmoblile trailer, to a rusted 55 gallon drum.

“I’ve worked on planes, trains, automobiles, ships, bridges and high-story buildings,” he said.
