This company is headquartered here in Columbus.... Jeni Britton is a fantastic individual...

https://jenis.com/about/about-jeni/

Been fortunate to have produced a number of metal items for her business... The latest was a tube table frame used as a community table in their new headquarters office.. It will have a white marble counter top added to the top...

So, I landed a contract with the town I live in...

The city has moved into a new building that's getting a remodeling makeover....

I'll be supplying a number of stainless steel countertops and some special signage...

The mayor wants to have a grand opening on March the 3rd.

One of the signs was installed today, hanging from stainless steel cables... It's larger than the photo indicates. The right wing of the sign is 23' long. The left wing is 12' long...

Just started on the stainless steel counter tops today.... Need to have everything finished for delivery next Wednesday...

Congrats man. Landing a city contract with high visibility is awesome. It will likely lead to many many more jobs through them. That's how most places work. Especially when they see the quality of your work.

Not everything I make is out of metal...

These babies are getting ready to come out of the oven....

A pound of "Double Smoked" bacon / Spinach / onion / cheese quiche....

And the kitchen smells like a smokehouse.... The dog has a happy face...

I'm in the process of doing a rather nice restaurant for the owner in the "Art's District", which just so happens, is where my shop is located, which makes it real convenient for me.. I'm supplying all of the custom metalwork going into the space...

Here is a picture of some of my work from his last place... The long SS Countertop on the left is mine... The wall has a script SS sign thats mine... The center circular waiting seat is mine... And the table on the right is mine... Even the two small menu brackets with the yellow menu cards I produced... The glass bakery case on the SS countertop... I made the solid SS mounting blocks that hold the glass in place...

This is very cool! My cousin Ted does metal sculpture and stuff like this in Denver. I don't know how big of a 'scene' it is, but maybe you know him.
