    Trinkets and toys...come check it out.

    hey guys,

    most of you are well aware of my current circumstances. This is a little something to do to try and keep me busy and in touch with the real world.

    If you are looking for a something different for someone special, or just a random one of a kind trinket, or just something for shits and giggles, i may be able to help. I like to make things out of steel. mainly because i can weld a bit. This is NOT a fancy business venture. This is simply a way for me to maybe expand my skills a little, help people out who are looking for something a little different and dont know where to go.

    Here is some examples of what i have put together, mainly for family and loved ones.










    um turns out i have less pics than i thought. Ill hunt down a few more and get them up. As i said, this is definately not a big business venture. Basically, you hit me up with what you want, we come to a decision and i get cracking. You pay materials and shipping to you. I wont be charging a hourly rate or anything like that. I work too slow and inconsistently for that to be fair to any one lol. ie the flowers, although simple, take me about 2 days. Im sure no one wants to pay 2 days labour charges for a flower lol. So the costs will be more reflective of the piece and worked out individually. But rest assured thy wont be high lol. eg a flower might be costs, shipping and $30... you get the idea.

    Anyways, if anyone thinks they want something or have a great what f idea floating round, hit me up and im happy to oblige

    Yeah that's the trick lol. It really isn't that hard. It should only take an hour or two really. But it takes me a few days all told. So I'm not going to chase the labor worth lol. and I got no idea what it would be worth. I was gonna work on an honour system. You give me an idea what you think it's worth lol. But I'd be happy with 40$ I guess (only cos I said 1 was 30$ lol )

    As you can tell I'm not much of a business man

    Isn't it normally Materials + Time + 10%, though as you say you don't factor in all of the time, so maybe use a flat scale for that.

    I should really get a helmet and fire up the big arse one I bought from Bill... I'm so lazy heh.

    Yeah it should be something like that. But I'm just too slow. So I'm happy with people suggesting a price they think is appropriate .

    In for a flower rose thingy for $100. Missus will be so conflicted on if she loves it or hates steel in the house so it's worth it.

    Plus happy if it's a tiny bit of money for you and Anna from shit you can do on the side.

    Pm me specifics and I'll get onto it... Pm helps me keep track of things as I'm not the sharpest tool these days lol.

    Specifics ie frame ? no frame? Stand? Free styling like a romance cover ? and I'll start putting Shit together

    Hey lads. Have had a few people ask around the traps for bits and pieces for chrissy.

    It takes me a while to put stuff together, so if anyone wants anything for a Christmas present, hit me up

    I have to spend a few days in Adelaide in late novemeber so as much lead time as possible

    Thanks lads

    All good pat man. Orchid is a type of flower, just see if you would be able to do the petal arrangement as it differs from the ones you already done?

    Sorry to be picky, nopics likes them and I like your work so thought I'd ask
