My dream workshop would have many features to aid my creative endeavors, including a TIG welding station.

In college I was required to take an art class as part of my Graphic Design curriculum, and I was drawn to welding as a totally new skill to learn. 

I took to it immediately, and managed to transform both my class projects into something geek related. The Choco-mog was a challenge to combine two animals – the professor approved my use of fictional creatures. The second was to create a tryptic wall sculpture. Nearly 15 years later, the warp tube sculpture still hangs in my game room.
