If it’s made of metal and can be fabricated, we can use it. If you have specific requirements that aren’t mentioned here, just ask!

Can you laser cut fabricated items?
Laser cutting is available for metal sheets and some other metals but not shaped metals. Laser cutting is just one of many fabrication methods we use to build bespoke creations and while precise, it isn’t the only way to cut metal into shape.
What’s the lead time on metal fabrication?
The lead time depends entirely on the size, scope and complexity of the project. We have a steady supply of steel so we can work quickly to design and fabricate your item.
As all products are made by hand, to order, lead times can vary a lot. We ask that you contact us with an idea of what you’re looking for so we can provide an accurate estimate of cost and lead time.
