The last two months have been a time for many to learn new skills or revisit hobbies left behind in a busy world. Metallica frontman James Hetfield has done a little of both. A longtime vintage car enthusiast, James had been restoring classic cars for many years and had honed his welding skills while doing so. To expand on those skills, along with developing a new creative outlet, he built a pair of one-of-a-kind coffee tables dubbed “The Covid Collection by JH”.
Metallica’s All Within My Hands non-profit foundation is raffling off the tables, and one lucky winner will receive the set, signed and personalized by James.
Proceeds will benefit the Metallica Scholars program, a major workforce education initiative that provides direct support to community colleges to enhance their career and technical education programs. These programs provide skills and services to students who are looking to enter a traditional trade or other applied learning program. Metallica Scholars currently funds grants to 15 community colleges across the U.S., many of which provide welding classes and assistance with job placement in the trade.
