What do you think?
YES or No to a bathroom like this?

Word on the street is @jillian.harris might just be working on a new season of @loveitorlistitvancouver.

Here's a #tbt to our contribution to the final show of last year's season on @hgtvcanada in the form of a custom metal shower enclosure.

I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below πŸ‘‡

The only thing smoother than the surface of this sign(now) is @fogliftercoffee's Costa Rica roast. Seriously, order yourself up a bag and drive it through your coffee maker of choice. Mine is an @aeropress.

If you saw my stories yesterday you'd know that this is the second time these signs went to powder-coat. I didn't take the time to really blend the sign face like I usually would, and I paid for it. Where I welded the mounts and stand-offs on the back side you could see on the face. Like little ringworms eating away at my soul... I thought I blended "good enough"... Lesson learned. Slow it down Birdman, rush it and you do it twice.

These beauty pair of signs are FINALLY ready to grace one of the best roasting sheds you'll ever know. It's bonus that they're awesome people. β˜• πŸ‘Œ

...and we're back.

Maui was a blast (no missile pun intended) but it's right back to it in the shop!

She got that good good lava😜

I love this girl more than anything else. A stunner, a planner, a joker, a kind kind soul. How am I so lucky? Hawaii is that much more a paradise with you by my side β™₯️@leannekbird

What are your thoughts on this beachy beauty of metal driveway gate by @padilladesigns?

No matter where I am in the world, I never seem to have a problem drawing inspiration, and I'm really diggin' their work over here on Maui.  Looking at their Insta feed they hold similar family values as we do. Next time I'm here I'll hit 'em up and see if they'll have me by the studio/shop.

Support local wherever you are. πŸ’―

In busy-ass times in the welding shop we must ask ourselves, can I pause the grind and take a vacation? 14hr days, no days off...I turn to the @popeofwelding for enlightenment...oh holy one...can a welder get a break? πŸ™ Amen.

Maui-bound tomorrow. Please put all inquiries on a message in a bottle, and throw in the Pacific ocean for quickest response.

When one must become two to become one again... I fabricated and welded this 450+ lb  beast of a blackened steel room partition, without really giving much forethought on how in the hell we were going to get it up to its 6th floor condo final resting place... So I had no choice but to divide it into two, transport, then final weld and finish on site. Not an easy task, but that's the kind of crazy service we're offering.

Even in two pieces it was an ordeal to get it up there, but with a good team around me we killed it.

Very excited to share final pics of this project once they come in. A rad project with @gaileguevara and @4thdimensionconstruction πŸ‘Œ

Slidin' right into 2018.

A little shorty rail for the soon to open @dominionsurrey, blended nicely with a little help from @waltersurftech πŸ‘Œ

2017 is just about wrapped. See what I did there? πŸ§€ πŸ˜‚. What a way to cap it off... Yesterday we finished off a blackened steel fireplace cladding(waiting on fireplace trim bezel), complete with integrated side shelving unit. Easy? Hell no. Rewarding? You better believe it.

2018 IT'S ABOUT TO GET REAL.
(but first, Maui🌴)

Well if @westarcwelding is going to have the audacity to call me out on this #xmaseveweave business, it's only right I call out @evil_metalworks, @rj_bergley and of course @blend_fabrication, all 3 of which should they choose to accept, will put this weave attempt to shame. And it apparently doesn't need to be a fresh weave, as this one is like 3 months stale and I'm posting it as I get a pedicure...no joke.

Merry Christmas you greasy welders!

Throwing things back to warm warm summertime when @zoepawlak let me frame one of her beautiful mirror designs in gold powdercoated steel 😍😍 😍 (I know, you really have to zoom in to see the frame, but I love the photo and I had a blast working with her team)
