John Beck, owner of John Beck Paper & Steel, is a humble craftsman based out of  Edwardsville, IL.  Beck has channeled his passion for welding and working with his hands into a successful business.  He is doing what he loves and I must say that I am loving what he is doing.   Here are some stand out stars from his work.
