About bowjunkie35
Steve is a freelance propmaker (the movie kind) and machinist. A former construction worker, he has been working with tools since childhood. He learned the construction/ metal fabrication business from his Father, so to follow in Dads footsteps was natural. Since leaving the construction industry, he now owns and operates his own machine shop and manages a website for the business. He started building models around 8 years old when his older brother, an expert modelbuilder, would bring home built versions for him on his trips back home to visit the family. Wanting to be like "Mike" he started cranking them out, but like many others who thought that they were too old for such things, left it behind for awhile once he "grew up". He has since re-discovered that childhood joy in his life and has gone after it full force.
