Making Stuff: Footpeg Coat Hook

Since I’m finally at the point where I can cut, weld, and grind metal… when I was inspired to make a coat hook this weekend, I did so. I can’t even describe how excited I am to finally be able to do some of the weird decor and art projects I’ve had on my mind for years. My welding isn’t perfect, but it’s getting better with every go.

Anywho, on Saturday I made a coat/helmet/whatever-you-want-it-to-be-for hook out of an old foot peg… it even flips up.

Photographer Anthony Blasko visited Walt Siegl’s shop in New Hamshire and took some beautiful photos that seem to evoke the same emotions that looking at Walt’s builds do (for me).

Kudos, kudos. Capturing a craftsman at work is a rewarding challenge.

Doing some redecorating at my place.
Monster Project mini update: The bike is back at home (obviously) while Heath finishes moving his shop so we can start on the exhaust and then the seat will be finished.

Sometimes the Italians really know what’s up. Like the fact that having a motorcycle parked in your living room is not only totally normal, but classy as f**k.
