- About Us
What Makes Us Tick?
No telling what we'll come up with on a day to day basis. Once upon a time, we've produced motorcycle accessories, powder coated tractor parts, ceramic coated firearms and eventually built them from raw metal bars. It's been an interesting trip, and it's been a process without end. A good friend 'needed' a new guitar stand and it hit me. Hmmm, I wonder...? From 'thought' to the first model was a few hours. That first version is a cherished piece of furniture, currently residing in Strasburg, VA. Since that first one, they're coming daily, at times 2 a day as we learn how to make them better. From mild to wild, if you have an idea, we can make a stand with it.
How We Do It
A voice telling us to open our eyes and look. Those eyes seeing something that doesn't yet exist. Those eyes telling the mind to figure it out, and let the hands know if they're doing it right. Pairing locally sourced materials with hand crafted machinery, age old techniques and space age technology, we let our hands be guided by what we've been told to make. From a turn of the century saw, through a pair of laser engravers, the magic happens. Seriously, it's that easy for me. Just do it, it works.
Why We Do It?
Because I had a highly talented friend with a need, something that would help him, something that gave me purpose and a chance to once again create something with my hands. Oh, and since I retired, the wife wanted me out of the house doing something with my time.
