My latest customer comment from the owners of CMI electric. Good people!

Dear Brian,
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

Details of the Recommendation: "We hired Brian to fabricate and install a custom railing set for our front steps and porch. It came out incredibly well. The design is stunning and the work is of the highest quality. I would recommend Brain and Graydie Welding to anyone considering decorative iron work that is also functional."

Below is the steel Don Quixote Sculpture I was commissioned to replace.
I am very happy with the results.
My latest piece, a steel sculpture of Don Quixote. This was a $900 ordered piece that will be mounted in a garden in the suburbs of Washington DC. in 3 weeks.
much fun to make and I cannot wait to do my next piece, any ideas?
I thoroughly enjoyed making this metal Don Quixote sculpture and am very anxious to start on another. If you have a character you would like to see in steel form hanging out in your garden send me a pic.

Here's work from my local competition, check this out.
The work that is found acceptable to me is absolutely incredible! This is the railing on the Redner's they build less that a mile from my house LESS THAN A YEAR AGO. I'm afraid I know the organization that is responsible for this work. Incredible as it seems these are relatively high paid welders. They use as thin a material as they think they can get away with. It collects water rusts and pops the brand new concrete away, ice also expands. The concrete corner has been glued back on already. This steel pipe wobbles freely now because it's completely disconnected at the base. It literally sways in the wind. Many times it's not the welders fault, they make due with the instructions the boss gives them and he has prints to follow so no telling who is to blame. This might be why my customers are always so happy, the work they see out there is horrible even though it's done buy high paid labor. This entire railing has to be replaced and the ramp has to be repaired. Less than a year old.
This corner has already popped off and been glued back on. But now the post is rusted through.
this handrail blows freely with the wind less than a year after being built because the supporting posts are completely rotted away.
Less than a year after being installed this handrail must be ripped out and completely replaced. The ramp now also needs extensive work just to appear sturdy but concrete patches are never as strong as the original pour.
Not my work and his is why I do not drill large holes into anything outside.
I wonder how much taxpayer money was wasted when the decision was made to drill a huge hole into that big beautiful and expensive piece of stone. Can you imagine how much it would cost to have such a stone cut delivered and replaced then have the handrail replaced and anchored in a way that would not allow water in there that would eventually crack the stone? IMO big holes should not be drilled into stone.
