Installed an awning I fabricated

Here’s a picture of my friend and ongoing business partner, Solomon installing an awning I made about a year ago.


It has been intentionally weathered outside to gain the look it has now. 
After running over it with a wire wheel and giving it some coats of Penetrol, to keep it from rusting again (if you work with steel and don’t know about Penetrol yet, I’ll write a post with some videos on it soon and link this post, amazing stuff), it’s ready for hardware!!


Three 5/16″ lag screws mount each awning to the wall, total of six screws.


Self tapping screws mount the galvanized sheet metal roof to the 3/8″ flat bar stock on top of the awning.

Oh yea, see the fence on the right hand side?? I made that, the awesome ladder custom fit to size, I made that as well.

I get to have fun all week installing things I’ve been making over the course of almost two years. This restaurant looks nothing short of amazing! What an incredible real life portfolio this is becoming.

Thanks for reading.
More to come.
