Gate Design Photo
This post is to show the process of building a custom project.  "The Leaf Gate" was a job we completed in January of 2017 for a customer in Loveland, CO.  The leave design was the customers original sketch, and the overall gate design was from our shop.  Starting with the customers hand sketch, the first step I took for the construction of the gate was to create a CAD model of the design.  Using the measurements taken on site and basing the CAD model as closely as possible to the sketch, I created a frame and design that would work for the opening.  Having a computer model of any fabricated item ensures the design is thought all the way through before actually using any material. I then drew in a grid over the design, which was proportioned so that we could enlarge it on the shop bench and use this grid...
Hilton Railings 1
It's been a while since our last blog post, here is what we've been up to!  The photo below shows a stack of identical railings that we built with a jig.  These guardrail/handrail’s were built to replace the outdated railings found in a Fort Collins, CO hotel.  The stairs that these rails were installed in served as an egress stair shaft in the building.  There were three egress stair shafts in the 9 story building, each one connecting the first floor to the ninth floor.   The railings in the photo are waiting to be degreased, cleaned, and painted.                                                                                                         ...
Perkins Patio Railings scaled
Here is a really nice railing we fabricated in our shop.  The patio needed some accents, so we came up with a simple and clean design to fit the space.  Built from rectangular and square steel tube, the railing was finished with a flat black powder coat.  Feel free to contact us if you have a metal project you would like to fabricate.  We provide design and CAD services as well.  Reviews and more photo's can be found on our Houzz profile.  Email paul@hueberindustries.com, or call 970-481-5278....
Freestanding Pergola 1
Just finished a very cool cedar pergola for a home in Fort Collins.  This freestanding rough sawn pergola was built to save the family the hassle of using a "fold-up" temporary cloth unit that you'd typically buy from the store.  Our structures are built to withstand all seasons and last a lifetime.   We are a metal fabrication and woodworking shop in Fort Collins, CO.  Have a projecT?  Give us a call at 970 481 5278....
Lafayette Solar Sign website
Here are some shots of a sign we recently completed.  This was built from regular mild steel, the backdrop was powder coated black while the letters were sanded to silver and finished with a clear powder coat.  The sign construction was entirely bolted in order to powder coat all the steel used 360 degrees.  This allows the finish to be applied while the sign is unbolted, giving the powder coat appliers full access to the individual pieces of steel.  Below is a shot of the letters before they were sanded to a silvery finish.  The heat marks seen on the face of the letters are from TIG welding the studs onto the back side.  The studs are what hold the letters onto the black backdrop.     Hueber Industries is a northern Colorado metalworking, steel fabrication shop.  We design, fabricate, and weld anything metal.  We also have woodworking capabilities to compliment your project if...
Bistro Chairs 2
This blog entry gives a brief overview on some of the process involved in making the chairs and stools seen in the photo's below.  We fabricate all parts in these from scratch at our shop in Fort Collins, CO. The most recent order from our Etsy shop was 4 “Bistro” style stools with matching bar-stools.  The customer - from Boston, MA – specified a black finish for all the steel used.  The wood we decided on was walnut with an even darker “wenge” insert.  The stools are made for a 36” high table which the customer already has.                  The first step to creating these two different stools was cutting, bending, rolling, and forming the steel parts from raw material.  The photo below shows the manual roll machine used to create the round foot rest seen on the bar stools.  We create a coil...
