Austin's Finest Source for Custom

Metal Fabrication Since 1996





Hello fellow metal lovers. It's a special honor this month to be featured on the cover of the Construction News Publication. It feels like a lifetime achievemant award of sorts to be recoginized for being a special part of a community of hard working artists, builders and craftsman. This work for El Arroyo pictured below, was cut by hand and featured in the article. It's a true staple of Austin culture and the only sign I know of with it's own book and twitter account! It used to be just the name on top, but once the sign became famous the owners wanted to represent ATX for all the world to see.

This is a toilet paper holder I designed after the wooden version I made for my mother several Christmas' ago. I recreated it using 130 year old twisted Driskill steel that formed the vault rebar of the famed Austin Hotel. Special thanks to: Ron and Linda McDaniels
