Classic ranch sign design that was sent to Washington. If you have access to a welder, you can easly weld the pieces together on location. This allows you to have the size sign you want without spending a small fortune on shipping. (Kinda looks like "The Ranch" entrance sign on Netflix)
Whats happening at Torchcraft....
Simple design that looks great mounted on a large rock at the entrance. Cut from 3/16", sand blasted and powder coated black. Installed by the owner using stainless steel hardware.
This is a really neat piece that was made for a customer in California. They are a music group that travels around in the California area playing older Rock-N-Roll. He needed the sign to fit within a frame that he had made by a local fab shop. The idea is that it's moble and can easily be moved from one preformance to next.
"Just a short note to say thanks again. The Songbirds Sign was a great hit at the senior facility where they play. Put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces. Your help in accomplishing this was greatly appreciated"
This project turned out great, despite the low quality image I have. I fabricated the gate, side panels and art work. To add a touch of personalization, I took a somewhat side profile of my customer and used him in place of the Davy Crockett cut out featured in the top center of the sign. The shape of the gate resembles the Alamo and the other artwork represents the wildlife and landscape found on the ranch. Pics below are screen shots from the design phase of this project.
**All pieces and rock colums were installed by a 3rd party company.

"Hi Jerry, well we finally built our entry gate up to our heaven. The sign you had previously constructed so very well for us initially hung out by our roadway gate. But now it is moved closer to our home at the foot of our advent up to our cabin. Again, thanks so very much. The sign is still like new and will have many looks from our visitors. Great work!! Take care my friend."

36" tall Scottish Thistle was cut from 1/8" plate, sand blasted and powder coated in a texture black. I've never seen one of these before this project but it sure is a beautiful creation.
A customer came to me with an idea for her brother. He was 70 years old and had always wanted to do a 500 mile hike across Spain. He made it, and she brought me a picture of him on the trail. I was able to pull a silhouette of him from the pic and create this metal sign to last a life time.
Here is a sign that I did for a customer in which I didn't know the full story behind the name. Below is from my customer after the metal sign was installed.
Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. Crazy week or so. I had the sign installed last Thursday in time for our housewarming party on Saturday. Not only was my wife blown away by how amazing it looks (she was moved to tears), we also received a lot of compliments on how cool it is from our friends at the party..........
A Customer from Austin purchased a ranch South of Uvalde and wanted a custom overhead entrance. The man resting under the tree was copied from a photograph of the owner. The rabbit represents a life lesson that was passed on to him. “It’s no fun when the bunny has the gun”.......
I don't usually tackle these kinds of projects but a previous customer from the Rockin Armadillo Ranch asked me if I could make a 3D Armadillo like his logo for his ranch. First I framed out the basic shape with square tubing, then added the exterior pieces made up of 1/8" and 3/16" thick plate. Finally it was sand blasted and powder coated. I sure got a lot of looks while pulling this down the road.....

This photo is an update from a previous post back in May, 2017. A customer in Colorado had me make the overhead entrance sign for is Ranch. He recently asked me to design and cut the artwork to be added to his gates. It looks like the project is about finished up and it looks absolutely beautiful.

I think I made this sign over 20 years ago. My customer brought it back to me recently and asked if I could clean it up with a fresh paint job. What I like to call a "liquid overhaul".
