Just a little about myself. I am 22 years old I Moved to the Harrisburg area for a job at posies after attending Wyo tech. Posie Originally Hired me to be an In house upholster after he saw my work on the Interview at Tech. although I never really did much upholstry for posies I did learn to fabricate there, but i mostly did body work. and prep stuff for wendell. I worked at posies just shy of 2 years. I met another person my age named Blake Tomlinson, who also went to Wyo tech, and also worked at posies at the time. He and I Had the desire to learn this craft. At this time Posie took notice in our Interest in our sheetmetal interest and came to us with some interesting drawing of some kind of headrest. Ken gave us one shot to build this thing and we ended up building 2 of them Although these headrests were a group effort by "Team Posies" All of the actual shaping of these pieces were done by Blake and I. This was our first Real project other than some bowls and blisters. After that project I knew I wanted to learn this Craft. I began attending Events called metalmeets... There I met some of the finest craftsman out there and not to mention downright great people! There I learned so much from so many individuals. After seeing a lack of potential to grow under Posies wing, I left to do Upholstery work for Carlevale Custom Cars doing Interiors Here are some Pictures of the Upholstery work I did While I worked there. Now I currently work out of my friend's shop in his back yard where I am building His 27 T In the Harrisburg area. I truly love to work with metal. Just simply trying to put it out there. Ive also been doing some pin striping as a hoby
WOW! That is impressive! Doug should be real happy with his doors.
