Proprietor Zack Orth specializes in custom metal fabrication projects, and turns out especially intricate work using his computer numerical control (CNC) plasma cutting machine. "I like to build things that enhance people's lives," Zach says. "For us, it happens to be through wood and metal creations." Enhancing Lives, One Design at a Time Using original designs, Zach has manufactured single and multi-layered metal signs for businesses, families, ranches – even his kids' elementary school classes. "My wife, Ashley, really brings the 'woman's touch' to what we do," he says. "She does a lot of the designs, the business paperwork, and sometimes she's on the plasma cutter. And their creativity extends far beyond signs. The couple has also taken on projects like a wood and metal entryway coatrack with a built-in bench and cubbies, a peaceful multi-tiered water fountain and an enormous backyard play land and clubhouse that most people would be delighted to actually live in. "Making something with my hands is so rewarding," Zach says simply. "We enjoy being creators, dreamers and entrepreneurs."
