Repurposed Speedster Race Car

Speedster Race Car Repurposed as MailboxSpeedster Race Car Customer Photo

We were asked to repurpose this Speedster Ride-on Race Car into a mailbox. The steering linkage was disconnected and altered in order for the wheels to remain operable, the body was sealed up, and a hinge and latch system was installed. We appreciate our customer for sending us the final photo after installation.

 

If you have something you’d like to repurpose, stop by and let us take a look.

Custom Bar Cabinets for Pinthouse Pizza at Burnet

Custom Bar Cabinets

#pinthousepizza asked us to update their old wooden bar cabinets as a means to provide easier access to the plumbing lines behind the tap wall, and to prevent further corrosion of the cabinets themselves. We recreated the 31’ cabinets using 16ga mild steel and 1½ ” angle. Due to weight factors, the cabinets were fabricated in four sections with access panels that clip into place using built-in slots.

Powder-coat was applied in dark bronze to mimic the color of the previous wood. Before powder-coat is applied, it is recommended that the project be fully complete and may need additional reinforcement depending on the size of the project.

Mother’s Milk Bank Donation Wall

Mother's Milk Bank Donation Wall

Non-profit organization, Mother’s Milk Bank, asked us to install a metal donation wall that would be used as a magnet board to showcase their donors. Maximum sheet size for most sheet metals is 4′ x 10′. Since this wall measured 5′ x 10′, we pieced two sheets together and cut-to-fit onsite to ensure a perfect fit. Known as “paint grip”, this type of metal is paint ready if desired. If left raw, visible scratches will be inevitable and white rust will develop when exposed to the elements, specifically water.

Magnetic and writable, metal walls make a great addition to your office or home. If you have a design idea in mind, send it to us.

 

*Mother’s Milk Bank is a non-profit organization that saves babies lives by providing prescribed, pasteurized donor human milk to hospitals and neonatal intensive care units. To find out more, or if you would like to donate or get involved, please visit https://www.milkbank.org

Custom Design Garden Gate

Custom Design Garden Gate

Working in collaboration with our customer, functionality and design really came together in this project. The 3’ x 3’ gate was built using 1-inch square tubing and left raw to match the existing fence design. A custom latch, along with two pin receivers and hinge pins were required for added strength and durability.

If you have a gate or fence that is need of repair or if you just need a whole new gate or fence, give us a call at 512.358.6869. We’d be glad to help!

Custom Shelving Unit with Desk

Handcrafted specifically for the space, this project was designed using mild steel and poplar wood. Final cuts and fittings were made onsite during installation. A natural stain for the poplar wood desktop and shelving was chosen to contrast the espresso metal framing.

If you have a home project you’ve been putting on hold, we’d love to hear from you.
