yea, mine was a completely free project, got the material left over at work. got paid while I did the work. And then i snuck them into a bunch of other stuff that was getting anodized, so I didn't have to pay for that either. I love anything that is free.

If the boss/owner did not okay you to take, they are NOT free they are stolen. BIG difference.
Free - no strings attached.
Stolen - loose your job. Is it worth it? Not in my book for $20.

is your dad the boss or the owner? big difference. just because someone is the ceo, doesn't neccesarily mean he owns the company.

well he's not the owner, but the owner really doesnt care, and if isnt wasnt for my dad, the company wouldnt have made it anywhere near as far as it has, so the owner doesnt say anything as long as we get everything done on time. And the pieces that i used were scrap, so nobody cares.
