Our 20,000 sq ft shop is fully equipped for construction projects large & small. We once built an airport right here in Bayview. To discuss your project, contact us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fabrication

Fabrication

We specialize in producing unique, creative, sometimes bizarre works of art and design for both form and function. We have fabricated a broad range of custom projects, from large scale to miniature, from sleek and modern to rustic period pieces, and we love the challenge.
Paint Department

Paint Department

Our scenic painters, faux finishers, and all-around pigment and texture experts work within our fully equipped, full size, on-site industrial spray booth. In the rare circumstance that your project does not fit in our 12 x 24ft booth, our Bayview warehouse is large enough that we can custom build one for you. Check out the automotive finish we applied to a large container unit we converted for Ouya in our Case Studies section.

 

Metal Shop

Metal Shop

We have a fully-equipped metal shop complete with a CNC plasma system where our talented metalworkers design, cut, grind, rivet, weld, solder, twist, and bend the stuff to your specs.

Wood Shop

Wood Shop

Here at One Hat One Hand, we make full use of our wood shop. Our skilled craftspeople are experienced carpenters, finish workers, furniture and cabinet makers. We combine experience and artistry to meet your needs.

 

 

CNC Routing

CNC Routing

A CNC router uses a "Computer Numerical Control" system to direct cutting with absolute precision. This mechanized precision makes it possible to create extraordinarily intricate designs in wood, aluminum and acrylic*. Such detailed custom routing options would not be feasible without a CNC router.

*note that our Metal Shop houses a CNC plasma system.

 

 

 

Installations

Installations

We have a keen understanding of tight deadlines and tighter budgets- experience that goes a long way towards making your event as great-looking, interactive, engaging, and memorable as possible. We have designed, fabricated, delivered, and installed all manner of semi-permanent installations for a variety of festivals and events in the western United States.
Festivals

Festivals

A big event needs to make a big visual statement. We have produced bold and elaborate archways for festival entrances. We've made outdoor art galleries, unique shade structures, and entire villages for guests to walk around in. We have built snack shacks, beer bars, coffee counters, VIP lounges, forts, water stations, stages, carnival games, and picnic benches. If it's big, crazy, and unbelievable, if it has moving parts and seems impossible, we can do it.

Corporate Events

Corporate Events

Visual branding must be front and center at a corporate event. Whether showcasing a new product or just rewarding loyal clientele, it's crucial that you put your company's special stamp on it. Let us fabricate giant pendant lights with your company's glowing logo, or a monumental version of your product on display as a backdrop for the unveiling speech. Maybe you'd prefer a handcrafted bar, party island, or photo-op pirate ship. We can make your event memorable by building a spectacle, designing and building the tent, or adding the finishing touches like signs and light fixtures. Think big. We can do it.

Professional Interiors

Professional Interiors

These days, it's not just about having a great product. Shops, restaurants, and bars use seductive interior design to attract customers. If the atmosphere has ambiance and character, they'll want to come back with their friends. We have created eye-catching display counters made from upcycled materials, a swanky backlit entryway for a nightclub, hip murals for interior walls, a chandelier made of antique trumpets and tubas, shelves, light fixtures, and mobiles. We love building and installing functional art that people can enjoy time and again when visiting or working in a retail or professional interior. Let us in on your idea. We can realize your perfect place.
