Standard Metal

Welcome to our official website!

Standard Metal Works is an ornamental fabrication shop, specializing in, but not limited to, stairs, railings and furniture. While Standard’s current iteration is relatively new, its roots are old. Shortly before the start of WWI, the Reynolds family founded Standard Machine Shop, located at 10th and Walnut here in Boulder. There, for 70 years, they built and repaired everything from farm implements to parts for Apollo spacecraft. Standard Machine is our namesake and our example; we are doing our best to honor those roots by running an honest shop and producing quality work.

I've really enjoyed seeing all the unique metal work you guys have cranked out. I'm really impressed!!
