Polygal clad infill in blackened steel frame in today as well as started coursing out white washed pine cladding. Always fun figuring cladding with floors out by 1 1/4” and scribing to the floor. Joys of renovation. @gg_roasting @hsuoffice @franklinalanatx #austin #construction #fabrication #architecture #carpentry

Shops should still be called office drawings. Real shop drawings are typically done in pencil, sharpie, or soapstone on steel. #architecture #fabrication #drawing

Always a pleasure to be back in the studio environment. Got to review some of @mf.architecture vertical studio projects today and was impressed by the student work as always. Though it’s been a few years I still vividly remember most of my reviews, as sleep deprived as they were, and professors literally tearing finished models apart. That is until I pulled out the Lincoln 135 with some flux core on the fire escape and welded my next final model together (only one I still have). #utarchitecture #studio #crits #architecture

@bangersaustin new smokehouse foundation going in. Excited to be doing structural steel as well as the fun cooking setup for the smokehouse. #austin #steel #architecture #fire #smokehouse #fabrication

Gang knocking out these cantilevered pine and steel benches at @gg_roasting . @hsuoffice @franklinalanatx #austin #pine #steel #bench #fabrication #boardformedconcrete #cantilever #seating #carpentry

Door pulls up at @suerteatx . Love the gradient on the inside of the door @michalovicwoodart did. @delineate_studio @mattgarciadesign #austin #carpentry #woodwork #fabrication #pull

@icweld rolled up in his shiny new rig at lunch today. Makes ours look small by comparison and definitely lights a fire to get it done. Super well thought out and dialed rig. At least Issac offered to help finish mine. #austin #welders #weldors #weldingrig #dodge #dually #worktruck

Yoshi routing out door pulls for @suerteatx. These are for the big pivot collaboration with @michalovicwoodart . @delineate_studio @mattgarciadesign #austin #carpentry #fabrication #woodwork

Still got to level em up and bolt em in but curvilinear lighting armatures are up @guild_atx sitting pretty atop some dialed white oak pony walls from @mendservices . Always makes me more nervous drilling through someone else’s finish woodwork then my own. @franklinalanatx #austin #restaurant #architecture #fabrication #steel #lighting

Coke can for scale. Repair bolts for the concrete crack pictured on the left. 2 1/2” structural all-thread perpendicular to the beam back into good concrete. Engineer’s spec, I just install it. #austin #structural #steel #concrete #repair #beefy #thatoughtadoit

Finish 📸 from @digarchitects of this fun stair set we did on a residential project for them. #austin #architecture #fabrication #stairs #cantilever #cabled

Lighting armatures for @guild_atx . Finally got tube back from bender this afternoon, slamming em together. #austin #architecture #fabrication #steel #tig #synchrowave

What it looks like when an engineer hasn’t had their coffee. 2 1/2” diameter structural rod and nuts that need to be cored thru some existing vertical steel embed plates and 12” of concrete as a corrective fix for some weak concrete corners. #austin #structural #bignuts #steel #heavyduty #scale

@tmathis138 loves heights and cantilevered corners. Setting angle lintels on Rockmoor. @hughjeffersonrandolpharchitect @wellbuilthomes #austin #steel #fabrication #welding #architecture #structural

White oak radius’d corners. These were bagged and tagged a few posts back. @guild_atx @franklinalanatx #austin #carpentry #woodwork #oak #corners #install

Sunday’s are usually nice and quiet around the shop and therefore good days for laying down finish. Got this 4/4 walnut top sanded and clear coated . Just needs to be mounted to it’s blackened steel base and ready for delivery. #austin #furniture #custom #fabrication #steel #walnut #carpentry #woodwork #welding

Brought the office on a field trip today to teach the finer points of shooting elevations , both laser and transom. @chioco_design #miarsconstruction #surveying #architecture #design #construction #zerozero
