Crafting quality

Metalsmithing

We design and build tools for the homestead from recycled and new metals. The woods in our tools are sustainably harvested from our property or salvaged from construction projects. These tools are built to last,  have character, and are  tested on our own homestead.  

We create functional and beautiful garden structures from trellises and  arbors, to gates and decorative plant stakes. All of our structures incorporate the whimsical inspirations we find in nature.  

We create functional  art for the home. We are inspired by the materials we work with,  many of which are found objects salvaged from old farms in the mountains, to make metals into art for the interior of the home and the homestead.  

Do you need a special metal product for your business or farm?  We do that! We have made specialty carts, fabricated specialty tools for local breweries, welded structural beams in home foundations, and repaired old farm equipment wanting a new life. We can make or modify a large variety of products. We have a mobile welding unit that allows us to bring our welder to you or we can do it in our shop  at the  farm.

A metalsmith or simply smith is a craftsperson fashioning useful items (for example, tools, kitchenware, tableware, jewelry, and weapons) out of various metals. Smithing is one of the oldest metalworking occupations. Shaping metal with a hammer (forging) is the archetypical component of smithing. Often the hammering is done while the metal is hot, having been heated in a forge. Smithing can also involve the other aspects of metalworking, such as refining metals from their ores (traditionally done by smelting), casting it into shapes (founding), and filing to shape and size.
