who we are
We live and love metal. From large scale structural builds to artistically detailed small installations, we dive into every project with over 60+ years of combined expertise, enthusiasm and creativity.
Erin has been working for MWF for 7 years, prior she made table bases for Coyote Woodworking and wasn’t very good at it. She wasn’t good at it because she was being “kept in a box” and once out of that box her ability level to create and perform have yet to reach any exponential primarily because she continuously pushes herself to be better. Erin is one of the most talented fabricators we have ever had the honor of working with, her talents are only limited by her doubt and as a “community” we work together to remove that doubt. TIG, MIG, abstract to the absolute linear, Erin’s capacity to build and create is bar none to anyone in the NW…. and when she figures that out she’ll easily find someone that can pay her more!
Mason, the new kid, young and ambitious and always outside his comfort zone at MWF. 5 years of burning amazing straight lines in heavy metal, and years of gorilla Buick hotrod craziness have set him up for incredible success this year…. Even if he doesn’t know it. Mason is number 2 linear thinker and “Mr. safety” here at the shop, which we all benefit from. Those days of non-Osha compliant shortcuts are now a thing of the past! Mason bridges the new technology of digital imaging and cnc tech with the old of big block v8s and hotrods…. Everything we love here and the reason why the “hotrod” section of MWF has come back to fruition just this year.
Fabricator | Founder
Jeremy is dysfunctional on most days. His mother started him in metal shop in sixth grade in order to “keep his hands busy.” College educated, he became burned out with the education system and went for his second love of metallurgy by starting Monkey Wrench Fabricatoins, LLC (originally named “Exploiting Heat”) back in 2002 as a way to find his soul after giving it away for so many years…. Jeremy went to Washington State University and has degrees in early childhood education and elementary education. He taught kindergarten, and also middle school graphic arts and sculpture combined for a total of 15 years.
Fabricator | Detail Work
Camryn, a hot rod restorer and fabricator focusing on pre-1970s Eurotrash, brings a level of detail and focus that’s pushed the quality of production work to the next level around here. Learning the trade from scratch, and without guidance, at age 17 Camryn started restoring her 1967 VW Squareback – an amazing restore! Now that she has more resources at her disposal, her fabrication skills have improved ten fold. She is currently running installations and “detail” work here at MWF.
The quality is solid, and the aesthetic captured exactly what I was looking for. I love that they took my idea, and played. The work was done on time and at an affordable price. I am super happy that I met the Monkey Wrench Gang. I love my Juliet Rails. Thank you for the excellent experience.
10/10. No-BS quote with excellent quality at half the competitor’s pricing for what I needed (powder coated coffee legs). Would highly recommend!
Excellent quality and fast service for metal legs for our new live edge table. Simple as we requested and fit perfectly.
