Spring 2022 Update

It’s been a busy spring at Lorenzen Customs.  You may recall we were in the middle of a master bathroom/closet remodel which is finally coming to a close.  We’ve also been working on several commissions – two bike sculptures, an AT-AT birdbath (so fun!), a keg lift (still in progress) for Mash Mechanix Brewing (https://www.mashmechanix.com),Continue reading “Spring 2022 Update”

Show Time – Epilogue

My very first art show is coming to an end this week at Goat Patch Brewery in Colorado Springs (2727 N.

Going Jurassic

It’s been a busy February and March at Lorenzen Customs.  I’ve been designing and fabricating a railing for my father-in-law, a Stegosaurus wind vane, and (FINALLY) putting the finishing touches on the Ace and King of Spades playing cards.  It’s super exciting to see things getting finished and, most importantly, the big smiles on customers’Continue reading “Going Jurassic”
