Roosevelt and Co

Roosevelt and Company is a new men’s clothing store located here in Huntsville, AL. The store front is a build out of the bottom level of a parking garage off the main stretch of downtown Huntsville on Clinton Ave. They offer a casual side of the store featuring designer jeans, shirts, and accessories. They also have a more up scale side of the store offering tailored suits. They also have a corner of the store that is home to a barber shop.

While developing the brand, they wanted to run with an industrial feel using raw steel and concrete to tie into the parking garage past. The biggest piece was the cash bar. It was designed to look like a industrial metal bar but hold the computers and all the behind the scenes running of the store. We created the frame and face from hot rolled steel and used exposed rivets to get a real industrial feel. We poured a concrete upper counter top and a lower counter top. Then we finished out the back with some Red Oak shelves and drawers. It turned out to be an amazing and detailed piece.

We created this display table using a metal base welded from hot rolled steel rod in a random pattern. Then a 6ft diameter 1/2 thick piece of tempered glass was added to the top to create an original statement piece.

In the loft waiting area, we created this reclaimed wooden beam coffee table. The beam was pulled from a collapsed school house in Prospect, Tn with the help of my dad. It sat on blocks for a few years at my parents farm before I finally found a used for it on this one of a kind coffee table. We added a metal base and 1/2 thick piece of glass to finish out this piece.

We created a series of rolling hanging racks and shelving racks for moving around the store and showing off different merchandise.

Metal Globe Sculpture

Recently I was commissioned to create a metal globe sculpture. I broke down,bought a tubing roller, and few sets of dies. This simple tool pretty drastically expanded our fabrication capabilities. I can now roll perfectly round rings in all sorts of different size stock, even square tubing! The particular commissioned globe called for several 4 foot diameter rings for the main structure. After the base and holding arm was finally completed, the finished globe came in about 5 feet tall!

I created a few paper templates to get the scale of the continents perfect. Then I cnc plasma to cut the continents from 14 gauge. I finished this piece off by welding the continents the ring structure I had already created. I think it turned out really awesome! Now I just need to make a 12 foot diameter!

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me- info@dropmetal.com

Thanks for looking!

Hammered Rivet Aluminum Sign

Lately, I have been using aluminum more. It certainly has its own challenges because aluminum and steel don’t have many of the same properties. Everything from fabrication, to finishing, and painting are all different between the two materials. I decided to create a new Drop Metal sign to take to shows and exhibits. It is a smaller sign about 20 inches wide and  created from 3/16 aluminum. It has tabs on the back to hang or a stand were it can sit on it own. I used a technique I picked up from my friend, Connie Ulrich, using hammered rivets, in this case from stainless steel.

Turned out pretty nice!

Concert in the Orchard

The Athens Art League along with Isom’s Orchard in Athens, Al put on a dinner and concert in the orchard on October 11, 2014 to benefit the arts. The entertainment for the evening was none other then the Alabama Shakes! I was asked to create some pieces of art as a thanks to the Shakes for playing the event. I went to work and came up with some music inspired Drop Metal style art pieces.

Thanks for everyone that made the event happen!
