Whats happening at Torchcraft....
This ranch sign was cut from 3/16" plate. Our customer gets high winds in the area and didn't want the sign blowing around too much. The heavy 3/16" plate helps a lot with that, plus we welded extra chainlinks to the bottom corners for 2 extra connection points.
As a couple of avaition enthousiast, we love doing work for other avaition pros / enthousiast. The Flying B Ranch was cut from 3/16" steel and blasted / powder coated in traditional black.
Zerlotti - Horse Genetics - wanted to add their name and logo to their existing gate and entrance. The large "Z's" were cut from 1/8" to keep weight down on the gate. The lettering / logo was cut from 3/16 and installed in the stone.
We do a lot of black powder coating on our signs but sometimes White is the way to go. This sign really stands out. We do a lot of black powder coating on our signs but sometimes White is the way to go. This sign really stands out! Our customer provided the measurements for hole placement that aligned with the gate structure.
This customer wanted a bold address sign with a natural rust finish. This was cut from 3/16" corten steel, also known as "weathering steel". It was sandblasted which removes the millscale for a quick rust finish and will never rust though. Thats the beauty of corten steel.
The Durando Ranch is in the North Fort Myers Florida area. Most of the signs we do end up with a black powder coat. Every now and then we'll do a white powder coat and it always looks great and stands out well. It's always important to consider the background and try to envision how visible the sign will be against the contrasting background colors.
The late Gene Romero, "Burritto" is honored on this ranch gate in Arroyo Grande California. The Burritto was one of the worlds top motorcycle racers in the 60's and 70's with his biggest win in 1975 at the Daytona 200.
Each piece was cut from 3/16" steel, and shipped in 2 packages to California. Once welded in place, it was painted
Good looking sign that was cut from 3/16" steel. Shipped unfinished so it could be welded in place then painted.
Sunrise Village wanted some rustic / rusty signs to install at their beautiful entrance to their subdivision. While rust color powder coat looks beautiful, nothing looks as real as natural rust patina. Each sign is cut from corten steel, which will only rust on the surface. These signs were sandblasted for a quick rust patina. They did a great job with this entrance and I'm glad to play a part in the build.
The Doodle Ranch sign measures 72" wide cut from 3/16" steel plate and some bracing on the backside for added strenght. Sand blasted and powder coated black....
The Kinney County Appraisal office in Brackettville, TX orderd 2 of these signs for their office building. Both cut from 3/16" steel, sand blasted and powder coated in black. Below is the their logo that was used to create the metal sign.
I'm glad to be a part of this ranch gate build. My customer contacted me with a picture of her husband standing on a horse that she wanted to have recreated into a silhouette metal cut out. She had someone build the gate and do the install, she just needed the art for the center of the gate. The entire entrance turned out absolutely beautiful!
This ranch is located in the TX panhandle near Amarillo. The sign was shipped in multiple pieces, welded in place on location and painted. The antlers measure about 4 foot X 8 foot so bracing was added to the backside to counteract the high winds that they get in that part of the country. I love the colors they chose. It should really stand out.
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)
Rancho Padre Viejo (Old Father Ranch). Great Ranch name and very fitting for my customers last name. These two bucks were copies of 2 of the largest buck taken off this ranch. My customer emailed pictures of each buck. I was able to copy and reproduce them on this metal ranch sign.
The Zimmerman Ranch is located in the North Dakota area. This sign was cut from 3/16" steel, sand blasted and powder coated black. I love when I get a picture
