“Though there isn’t much left of the old truck, it’s one of my favorite toys to play with. I was driving it when I met my wife and I think she fell in love with the truck before me.”
Scott Swab, Field Relief Manager in Jacksonville, Fla.
Swab takes more of an artistic approach to his hobbies, including: engraving granite, painting granite and canvas, and woodworking. He sits in his shop during all hours of the night until he gets an idea for something.
“The engravings all started about a year ago while anticipating my first granddaughter to be born,” he said. “I was sitting out in the shop waiting to hear word and I had a piece of granite lying on the work bench that I was using to make a table top for one of the GM’s. I decided to make a backsplash for it and thought it needed a fish, so I dug out the engraver and engraved a redfish into the backsplash.”
Each of the pieces shown here has been a gift to someone in Swab’s U-Haul family.
“I find it extremely relaxing because I don’t think about anything and never really know what the final product will look like until it’s done,” he said. “I do this strictly for therapeutic reasons.”
