Hand Crafted Metal Work

at its finest

Our full service shop is staffed with some of the most skilled wrought iron artisans on the West Coast – including father-son teams. All our work is done in house, from the smallest to largest detail. This enables us to have tight control over quality and delivery, and gives our clients the opportunity to see their work in progress. We do not have a catalog. We do not carry inventory. We DO have lots of samples to show you, and most can be scaled up or down, or modified in a variety of ways. We respect and follow old masters, create new designs, and customize, per order.

Please visit our galleries to see a sample of our metal and ironwork, and stop by our testimonials page to see what our clients think about us. We hope you'll consider Ironwood Designs for your next custom metal project.
