My name is Joe Dale... I've had a lifelong passion for art, design, and automobiles. While attending University of Maryland I studied Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, and Art. After learning to weld I developed a true thirst for metal fabrication. I left school to embark on a career of custom car building. Soon after, I discovered a niche market in the automotive wheel repair industry. This is where I staked my claim. In 2006 I became an AWRSwheelrepair.com franchisee for Montgomery County MD. After almost 10 years of success I finally found the time to further develop my metal fabrication hobby into a business venture. A couple years back I found the opportunity to do some interior design projects at home which evolved into some furniture making as well. Now I've seen all of my life's work from the art, the engineering, the architecture, the custom car building, and wheel business all funnel into one delicate discipline where form meets function.
