Update 11_24_11 Well it took me until Thanksgiving to get some more photos posted. Actually Eric’s work has been featured on several posts over the last couple of months. I like to keep something collected on this page for all you Pennsylvania folks that visit.


9_06_11 Here is a view of Eric’s latest creation. It is a gated entrance to a wine storage area. It will be “antiqued” as a applied finish but it looks pretty impressive just as it stands. Note the scrolls on top and the “thached” look on the base. Neo-classical style I would label it.

8_01_11 The Steely Gates of Dunndome

Eric was putting the final touches on a heavy duty steel gate when I came through the shop today. A radical departure from the usual fair of aluminum products the railing business has demanded of his time. Very sturdy in structure, the knuckle design pickets in the center are contrasted by the handmade iron scrolls at the top. The bottom pattern is what he calls the “modified football pattern”. But what has really got my attention this evening was the Krinklglas backing. This is because I get to use words like translucent (meaning allowing light through but not detailed images) and refracted light (meaning a light ray which becomes skewed by being introduced to another medium ie light through a prism). Both of these are descriptive of the substance which is the ideal backing for this gate. Why? Because more than creating a unique look, it is virtually indestructable and it is touted as impact and scratch resistance. The 2″ x 1″ steel construction is complete with Rustolium black paint, a stainless steel locking system, solid steel hinges with grease fittings, and lock down pins. The horse equivalency of “The Black Stallion” merging with “Rainbow Brite”.

Where imagination meets welder, you enter the world of Eric Dunn (Dunn Metalworks). His widely diverse background working in and around steel products makes him qualified to handle even the most difficult of assignments with ease. General Contractors in the surrounding Grand Strand area rely on his expertise to make jobsite visits for installation of steel I beams and general welding requirements. It is in his shop, however, where creativity meets capability, and he reaches his potential as an artist and craftsman. If you can conceive it, he can build it. From design to completion, Eric willingness to understand and produce results is unrivaled. Give him the opportunity to put his services to work for you.

    yeah but I don’t use my facebook account very much. maybe I should. I will think on it some more. I know it would increase audience size but I cannot stand how facebooks pumps information out of people.

    Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few % to power the message house a little bit, but other than that, that is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

    The cheapest option that will help somewhat is to hang a sheet of 1 pound Mass Loaded Vinyl over your windows that should give you some reduction without changing the structure etc.
