I've been creating artwork with a plasma torch for almost 2 years now, and I cut designs in old rusty tools. I use a lot of regular hand saws, but sometimes I just need a five-foot-long saw to tell a bigger story!

Here are some of the pieces I've made for clients, each one with a unique story. It might be a family farm when I used old photos of the homestead. Maybe it's a corporate gift with the company name and some equipment. Occasionally it's a custom hunting scene. I've made some with a military theme and recently an homage to Nebraska's 150th Anniversary!

I really enjoy telling a story with my artwork, and talking to the clients to get better understanding of their memory. The final saw in this gallery is typical in that I've included many small features that only the client knows and appreciates (and usually cries about). Enjoy!
