We are working on a custom wall art sculpture for part of La Cantera Resort called The Villas (formally Casitas) for the bar area remodel. Also have some progress on our reclaimed long leaf pine wood table tops looking good. Also a pile of chairs we built a while ago.
Cutting some 100year old Texas Pine boards for a dozen custom reclaimed wood and welded steel industrial style tables we are making for a historic building downtown San Antonio. We got an amazing SawStop table saw so we can keep all 10 of our fingers! Couldn't get all of this done without the amazing Zach Slough who has been helping us get these things out in an impossible time frame. All these boards have had 100yr old hand made square blacksmith nails in them which is cool but scary to cut! Autumn is wrapping up a painting she sold and Tig the shop dog is keeping us all safe in the "Bad weather"
Getting ready for the big storm! Got this custom light installed this week and hung our guardian of the hallway sculpture. Working on a custom hand forged handrail project and it got a little warm in the studio !
Just got done with a table made from our clients Grandfathers antique wood saw. We turned it into a table to toss your keys and wallet and sunglasses on when you come in the door at the end of the day. We restored it in a way that it is still fully functional if they ever what to use it one day.
This week we are making a pile of heavy industrial tables for a large 3 story building downtown that use to be a hotel. The client is having us use 100 year old reclaimed boards out of the building for the table tops and the boards have 100 year old hand made square nails in them! Also we are using the radiators from the hotel to make several large glass top conference tables for them as well. Our friend Zach is helping us get all this done in a very tight time frame! Stay tuned for more pics.
Custom stainless steel gate install early this morning to get things started. It ended up looking like Van Halen's guitar (pic below). Also this is a picture of a mold we are having cast into a custom manhole cover for a public art project on the riverwalk downtown San Antonio. This is the laser cutting process if you have never seen it.
Got a custom frame for and old piece of stained glass done and installed. Starting to get to know the FedEx people quite well with our online orders.
Getting some custom screen made here in San Antonio, the process it just like a loom for metal. Here is what bronze screen mesh looks like, can't wait to make some furniture and art out of this stuff.
Forging some tree branch and root theme handrail parts today. Made a frame for a large stained glass window that is super old, and getting going on a large project for a La Cantera Hotel made from custom branding irons from the top ten largest and oldest Texas Ranches.
