"EXTRA CREDIT" RAT MOWER

A side project to step away from the computer, this rat rod style mower was truly hands-on. I customized a used but fully-functional mower into the coolest ride in the neighborhood.  All was handcrafted - throttle handle, brake pedal, flatbed truck style seat, and vintage pinstripe painted details. Thank you "Big Daddy" Ed Roth for the inspiration.

"EXTRA CREDIT" HOT SAUCE

A fun project ask by a friend who was thinking of a BBQ food truck..."So I want to do a cool hot sauce....can you help me with that?"  I was all over it!  Doodle on a napkin soon turned into a mock-up over an empty olive oil can. Food truck never went forward but my concept and the Carolina Reaper still live.

"EXTRA CREDIT" STRAUSS SKATES

Discovery of an old wood table with three perfect planks. Finally the chance to bring my idea of replicating early-style boards to life. Table-top down to board shapes, sketches into stencils, followed by the search for roller skate wheels and adding crushed walnut shell "grip-tape" to complete the look. Pretty cool to see my boards on a Skateboarder inspiration page.
