Twisted Oaks

Twisted_Oaks
A customer from Arizona wanted a sign for their property in the Prescott, AZ area.  The oak trees in AZ are not quite as full as they are in the rest of the country. She asked that it have some twist in the lower portion of the trunk.  She also wanted it cut from 3/16" so that it wouldn't get blown around in the strong desert winds. ...

Rusty Rooster Ranch

My customer asked that I turn his logo into a metal sign that he could weld on to his entrance.  Once he gets it welded in place he will paint it a nice fitting red color. I have to admit, this is one cool sign.

 "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.

​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

20171229_1506571
​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...

Tattered American Flag

Worn_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...
