We recently collaborated with the incredibly talented to make this custom steel etagere (open shelf structure) for a local client’s outdoor garden potting table / outdoor dining space. We think it looks lovely against the backdrop of the client’s lush garden, and pairs perfectly with the hand-picked decor that surrounds it (we have Hayley to thank for that). Let us know what you think!

Aluminum Hand-Forged Doors | Santa Barbara Forge Did you know that it's possible to hand-forge aluminum? Lighter than steel, it handles coastal weather better than most metals. We just posted a video on how we made these stunning doors--check it out!

Watch as the SB Forge crew hand-forges gorgeous doors and a driveway gate out of aluminum! Check out our website ( and join our mailing list ...


In honor of Spring, here's a photo montage of a pedestrian gate Andy just finished for some fantastic local clients. I'd describe it as "Art Nouveau-meets-George-Macdonald-Fairyland" (minus the evil fairies). It perfectly fits their charming Santa Barbara patio enclosure overlooking the city.


Happy Friday! Check out this incredible table base design created by Dan Patterson and fabricated here in our shop. The backstory? A local client came to us with an existing tabletop and asked us to make a base. Dan proposed this design, and after a few meetings it was a go! Fast-forward to completion: a beautiful, modern, sculptural table ensemble that perfectly compliments the breezy and bright room that overlooks the city of Santa Barbara. Well done, Dan!


The good folks at SB Forge have been busy this week - take a look to see just a few of the things we finished in the past few days!


We just installed this steel awning at a beautiful Santa Barbara hilltop home. It had to withstand some of the 65 mph winds that regularly whip up the canyon while also providing resistance to wildfires. The particular direction of the steel crossbars provides shade at the key times of day while maintaining the view of the foothills. Great design + rock solid construction = beautiful metal!

A Perfectly Unique Mother's Day Gift Our mother taught us to be creative, resourceful, and kind. She also showed us how to use power tools, then allowed us to build a half pipe and bungee jump behind her house. Our friends had to sign a waiver to come over and play.  Our guess is that you appreciate your mother, too.  That's why we...


Happy Wednesday!

Santa Barbara 66th Annual Downtown Holiday Parade - Santa Barbara Forge

Click the video to ride along with us in the 66th Annual Downtown Santa Barbara Christmas Parade! We decorated the SB Forge work truck and built a custom drum rack with our radius benders. The band featured our own Dan Patterson on drums, on electric guitar and our friend also on electric guitar. Director of Operations and Marketing Joel Patterson played bass and arranged the music. What a fun way to ring in the season! On another note (pun intended), don’t forget that our special Holiday line of hand-forged carbon steel pans will only be available at their introductory price of $100 through December 11st. Check ‘em out at or click on the link on our profile page.

Looks like our shop just got featured the new Patagonia print catalog!

That's Madison Lowery, one of our former SB Forge staffers and dear friend, working on our shop's hossfeld bender.

A dramatic shot of our our stock bender: we feed metal into the rollers, and it bends it into a predetermined radius as it comes out the other side. Delicious!
