Other Sandvoss Projects


In my spare time I enjoy working with metal.

Having spent a few years on a leading race team as a fabricator with the world renowned race engineer, Warren Rowley, I developed an insatiable taste for metal work.

Warren has been very generous with his fabrication studio and invaluable advice over the years, which has allowed me and my 8 year old son Tilman to engage in a father/son after school project. This buggy is the result.

We are very excited to see the snow clear soon...
