Wedding Sign For a Lucky Couple

A couple in San Antonio is getting married this spring. They asked me to create this design with their names and wedding date on a rusty looking piece of metal. The metal is 1/8" plate with a faux rust painted background, white lettering and glossy 2 part automotive clear coat.   Measures 18" wide by 36" tall and weighs about 25 lbs. 

The Land Of 4 Oaks

 "Sign is great the whole family thinks it is a neat addition to the property!" This sign was cut from a heavy 3/16" plate so the wind wouldn't blow the hanging sign around too much. D-rings shapes cut into the top corners to easily hang from the chains and finished with a nice black powder coat.  

42" Flag For a 20 Year Army Veteran


Here is a 42" flag that I shipped out to Colorado for a Veterans Christmas present.  They just needed some hangers welded on the back for hanging directly on the wall above their TV.  I'm also including their Facebook post with a great video of the unwrapping.

6 Foot Flag Installed

​I got some pictures back of the 6 foot flag that I did for a customer in California. Looks great hanging on the wall behind his desk. He wanted this flag extra worn looking.  I added some deeper grind marks and cut out one of the red stripes towards the bottom.    "Hi Ryan, Sorry for not doing this sooner. The flag is AMAZING. Every...

6 Foot Battle Worn Flag

​Its the biggest flag that I've done so far. I had to cut this from 14 gauge steel to keep weight down. I really don't like working with metal this thin.  I would prefer to use 1/8" (10 gauge) or thicker but for this flag, I had to keep the weight down.  Either way, I think it turned out great. You'll notice the 2x4 frame that I mounted t...

Outdoor Monogram Sign

A friend gave this to his wife. She likes it so much she posted it on Facebook which is where I took this screen shot. The metal was powdercoated, mounted on cedar with stainless steel hardware for a long life in the crazy KC weather.

Doss Family Farm

Doss Family Farm located just outside Dallas sells chicken and duck eggs. This one was cut from 1/8" plate and painted with a high quality outdoor paint.

Christmas gift pics rolling in

​Lyrics from a Blue October song cut from 1/8" plate and clear coated.  

Kryptek Camo American Flag

This flag has the Kryptek camo pattern inlaid into a military themed green and black American Flag.  This is one of my favorites so far!  The metal flag is 1/8" plate, translucent paint with automotive clear coat and mounted on distressed wood.

Monogram Initial

I made one of these for my home.  I showed it to a few friends and they ordered one as well for Christmas gifts. The metal monogram is cut from 1/8" plate and mounted on distressed wood.  Kinda resembles a wine or whiskey barrel lid.  I'll post some pics of the others once Christmas is over so I don't spoil anyone's surprise.  I...

Pledge Of Allegiance American Flag

​I made this flag for a family member who lives in Charlotte, NC.  It has the same translucent paint and clear coat as my other flags but I added in the Pledge Of Allegiance into the white stripes.  It's made from a heavy duty 1/8" plate with D-rings welded on the back side for easy hanging.  

Tattered American Flag

I wanted to design a different, more realistic looking tattered flag than the cookie cutter clip art that the other guys are using. While that clip art design is pretty cool, its not realistic looking at all.  The translucent paint topped with an automotive clear coat really makes the colors and grinder marks pop.  Its hard to not move yo...

Kansas City Skyline - with LEDs

​The Kansas City Skyline is cut from 1/8" plate (11 gauge steel) and measures 46" in length. It is mounted to a 48" X 16.5" distressed wood backing. The cityscape features LED backlighting which is controlled by an On / Off / Dimmer touch pad. The lights plug into a standard household 110 volt outlet or may be hardwired to conceal the power cord. I...
