These doors are mostly hot rolled steel with the blue effect and are modern and contemporary in style. As the weather down here gets cooler we get a bit more interested in custom forging again. Time to drag the anvil over and start smaking some metal.

We chopped cut and rebuilt a clients antique tree sculpture this week. We got a pic of our large Scaleworks custom table delivery which was still one of our favorite spaces. We are also working on a stainless steel shoe rack that will be used to decontaminate shoes on a Mercy Ships Floating Hospital. These ships before covid-19 and the pandemic were out there in third world countries helping sick people and now are helping with that as well. Also a shot of our sculptors version of a paint brush, our angle grinders, each one does its own thing and adds texture and character to our work in addition to cutting and regular grinding.
For the first time we get to outfit a room in our own home with custom Wanderlust Ironworks furniture! We made our living room into a super cozy warmly lit movie room and home office. This furniture truly is a cut abouve the rest as far as bang for your buck custom furniture goes. Its heavy duty and high quality and living with it in our own space we know you will love your own custom designed piece. We stand behind our work 100%.

Just a bunch of pics of things we are working on this week and some items we made a while ago but are now available to purchase and pickup in store. We are working on our showroom right now but do have a handful of custom tables and architectural iron work items ready to go no wait time like we have with the custom items. Starting to get a lot more live edge items through the shop and now in the showroom.
Picked up some cool treasures this weekend. We bought an antique 102 year old wooden harp case that was pulled out of a fire! We also found this really cool 1911 courthouse file cabinet. We plan on making the harp case into a reclaimed conversation piece coffee table with custom cut glass top. The file cabinet may become our personal spice cabinet for our kitchen or we turn it on its side and weld a frame around it to make an interesting console or sofa table, or an neat entrance table. Also these are some quick samples of a section of a much larger public art, hospitality art piece we want to do for a new hotel coming to San Antonio. Also Wanderlust Ironworks has been getting into the blacksmith look on a lot of things if your looking for a modern twist to old world traditional textures and hand hammered finishes.

Throwback Antique machine restoration and then repurpose for a San Antonio Client, custom paella burner stand, and a custom light fixture.
Found pics of a real neat antique saw a client wanted restored fully with color matched paint from the 1930's. Then we put some blue streaked pine on it and made a conversation piece entry table. Also did a custom size light fixture chandelier for their dining room table. Also this week was this simple burner stand for our client to be able to cook a massive paella on.
Custom media cabinets, custom dining table with smoke grey glass, live edge wood, coffee table, custom vent hood.
We made some custom barstools this week with brass foot bars. We did a bit of hammered copper for a project and some hammered table legs for a huge reclaimed wood dining table that will be over 10 feet long! Doing some measuring for a future project at a beautiful family ranch. We even did a custom table base legs for an equestrian center thats being built. This is a beautiful luxury place to enjoy riding horses out in the country.
Got some of these indestructible shoes and they are amazing! These are like lightweight mesh running shoes with a steel toe for safety and a rubber soul that is just well indestructible. We worked yesterday on the vintage airstream restoration project with Andy and got some good stuff done on it out of thick aluminum. We are working on some hanging steel luxury daybeds for lounging on the back porch or outdoor kitchen. Also working on some reclaimed wood dining tables.
Our custom blue steel bookshelf is done! The feet are self leveling and the shelves are adjustable. We guess that it will hold 1500 lbs of stuff. We can make you a shelf system of any size or configuration!
Downtown San Antonio Sculpture At Night, Custom industrial urban loft style bookshelf almost done with self leveling feet.
Got a shot of our last sculpture to go downtown. The guys that did the lights threw a spot on this one and so now you can see the Kidney shadow on the building from up on the highway at night. Just got done with our super heavy duty industrial urban loft style bookshelf. This bookshelf has some automotive bolts that can rotate and wobble in any direction so the feet are now self leveling no matter how uneven the floor. This would make a nice storage shelf system for an outdoor kitchen that's on rock or uneven outdoor ground.
Custom industrial bookcase, Local San Antonio wines made in our building, reclaimed wood dining tables with rustic Texas Ranch flair.
Our friends that run an electrician shop out of our building next door now make local hand crafted wines called Whisper Path Cellars. Its fun to see them crushing grapes one season, washing wood barrels the next and then onto bottling. We are wrapping up a custom steel industrial style book shelf with adjustable height shelves in it. Wait till the crazy feet go on it, its going to be a neat one. We are also making a pile of thick industrial C-channel custom table bases as well this week.
Made a custom blue steel hot rolled vent hood or range hood as some call it. So happy to see a perfect fit at the install. We can make a custom metal vent hood of any style just let us know how we can jazz up your new kitchen or kitchen remodel. Interior designers take not we can do these in any dimensions. We also are making a pile of custom sized table bases and table legs custom welded. We are on a major custom metal furniture kick San Antonio! Let us know your project from custom shelves to dining tables and we will get you a design and a price. We also made some custom hiking and digging tools this week that are great for trail hikes and camping if you want some custom gear.
Custom dining table we did recently for our friends. This is a farmhouse or trestle dining table with a matching wood beam. This specific one was in maple and steel. We are also working on some rail panels for the San Antonio Riverwalk and will be done at the end of the month.
First up we built a custom matt black steel granite support for a hybrid dining table and kitchen island with a huge piece of granite on it. Working lately with NR Interiors Nicole Winmill and has the best taste of any designer we have worked with if you looking for a designer. Next we got a bunch of x shape bench seating legs and bases done this week. We also almost have another farm trestle style steel table base and hard maple top dining table done except for the wood beam that goes on the base. Also some more shots of one of our custom cabinets that was a liquor cabinet. We can do these custom metal cabinets in any configuration and with a wood and steel combo as well with free delivery to our San Antonio clients and a free custom built shipping crate to anywhere else in the United States.
Built a custom cabinet this week for our friends at the Magnolia Pancake Haus. We are also working on an industrial gear bench to match a table we had already built. Custom Maple dining table we are making for some friends is coming together. Also one of our custom rock gabion mailbox creations.
Tig was helping us wrap up fabrication on our latest large sculpture. We are about done on the next sculpture we are building. Getting set to drag it downtown and give it one last go over before we bolt it in. We created this for a Kidney hospital downtown and it will be light up at night if front of the building. Starting to see why people love to sculpt with stainless steel. Its very touchy as far as how clean you have to keep it and keep it away from regular steel or you will end up with rust marks! Not many people know this but stainless steel can rust if not treated properly, its stainless not stain proof. Lots of time on the back porch reading and hanging in the hammocks. The City Of San Antonio had us measure for a neat handrail we are building for the Riverwalk the other day and we saw no one down there, good job keep it up SA!
Also found some pics of custom planters we did a while ago and a hammered gold leaf coffee table that pairs old world blacksmith forging and modern furniture custom.
One industrial bench / custom coffee table we are designing for a client out of reclaimed industrial parts. Also one industrial table we did for Scaleworks a while ago when they opened. We got our most recent large sculpture project installed at our clients private residence and it turned out great! The client had lights installed before sunset that day and the night time illumination is better than we would have thought. The welded lifting tabs to get the disc into the property were going to stay at the request of the client, he thought they were cool but we have all since decided to come back and cut them off for a more streamlined modern minimalist look. We are laying low and working mostly from home and playing with LEGOS quite a bit as well as cooking.
