Bonehead Metal Art

Here is a thread of some of my metal art, hope you like it.

This first on is a grill I did for a guy. I know it is maybe a little too wild for some of the people here, but try to focus on the metal work.

I like both of the projects you have shown us. It would be nice if you could post how you made the skull. Please post build pics if you have them.

I sell the skulls. I make shifter knobs, grills, intakes, exhaust tips, tail lights, headlight, and a bunch of other things with my skulls. (ie, Bonehead) I can't give you a play by play of my secret recipe, but I can tell you that on some of them I hand shape the metal to what I need. When I find it, I'll post up a picture of a skeleton I made. The skull was made from an old truck fender.
Glad you like it.

Thanks, that last one was once an inner fender on a 1961 Ford PU.
I'll dig up some more pictures.

I really expected more feed back, but oh well.
This is one of a bunch of gear shift knobs I have made.

For some reason I missed the follow ups in this thread.

I now gather that the pieces are made by pounding, welding, etc not cast. Nice work!

Yep, sorry I didn't expand. I have been working with metal for a long time now. Unlike a traditional blacksmith, I may jump in on a blacksmith type project with full intention from the start is using a tig welder. On the other hand I may really mix it it up and tryto leave well seasoned metal workers scratching their head.
