Location: Sandy Utah

When I graduated high school in 1969, I started managing a very small equipment rental yard. A few years later, I acquired full ownership, that over the next 3-decades I built it to be the largest equipment rental company in Utah with five locations. I was bought out in 1998, then retired at age 47. Going from working 80 to 100 hours a week to nothing to do was a major shock, so I took up woodworking and 3D graphics, teaching myself the software from videos from dvd's and the internet. Now my bigger challenge if finding the next project.

Gary, I love what you have done on your restored 29 Ford, especially the dash. I have a friend in CA that has a 30 or 31 Ford Tudor. I made him a model of his car to display in his den. You may have seen it if you viewed my projects. As far as the plans that I follow, I will look at plans from places like TJ then go to the internet and view lots of old photos to see what I want in the final project. I may draw it out on a 11 X 17 sheet of paper to get actual dimensions. I don’t stick to any plan, so what I end up with may change along the way

Outstanding work on the trains. From what I can see in the pictures it looks like you have a pretty outstanding shop as well.

Have your say...
