Custom double curved staircase railing.  Hand forged snub end balusters, rings, collars and spiral feet.  Newel post is diminishing radiused spiral.  It is difficult to tell from the photographs but the stair builder built the stairs with several different pitches making the rise and run vary from bottom to top.  The railings we built minimize and almost completely hide his mistake.

Trifecta

This bar table that sits outside of a bourbon bar at the base of the 360 condos.  The owner wanted to extend the seating area outside and create interest and curb appeal for his bar.  The ipe top is very durable and can withstand the weather outside while only needing to be refinished once a year to keep it's beautiful color.

Here is a cusotm car retreat I built for a homeowner who needed another spot to park in.  The design matched the existing fence ornament in the front of the home. A beautiful copper roof tops the structure.

Fireplace indirons

Img 3568

I had a long time client ask me to design him a pair of andirons for his home last year.  I took the opportunity to design and make a second set for my own home.  In all the years I have been doing metalwork I have never set aside time to make a set of andirons for my own fireplace.  We forged the main posts from 2" solid stock and fullered the half round groove with a fullering tool we made for our power hammer.  I really like the design and how the pieces turned out. I feel it is a modern interpretation of a traditional style.

Burnett residence

This is an Anderson/Wise project that we worked on over the course of 1 1/2 years.  We did all the ornamental and architectural metalwork in the home as well as some structural steel retaining walls that elevated the backyard 4' above the adjacent yards to allow for installation of an ingound pool.  Some of the a work that we are most proud of is the cantilevered garage awning, the outdoor fireplace,  the simple curved handrail and the front fencing with custom pedestrian and driveway gates.  The fencing panels were recycled from a church in Pennsylvania and were made from wrought iron, a material which has not been produced for almost 100 years.  The fence panels date back to the 1870's.
