There is a love/hate relationship with trying to design and execute this particular bench. It took forever to decide on the wing structure and design. I think there was probably 50 variations in the design and this is the one we decided on. The wings are totally hand shaped. Hopefully this is the very last bit of woodwork we have to do, ever! We topped it off with a texture black powdercoat finish by the guys over at Rocky Willis Powdercoating. In the end we are very happy with the final product. Thank you for your order Miranda!

If you are in need of new fixtures for your garden this year, we can help!

We finished up this pair of custom tiki torches over the weekend and they are ready for their forever home! These bad boys put the expensive ones at the store to shame. We can customize a set any way you would like. A set like this is $60 painted. If you would prefer them powdercoated add $15. Let us know if we can build you a set!

We built the grill in the first picture last year, but we reworked the base last week. We added an expanded metal back, grill tool hooks, and some hand formed STL logos. We also gave it a coat of flat black paint and left the logos shiny. Thank you for the order Cope!

We were asked to come up with a custom dog gate for local brew masters! We were given complete creative liberties with this project. The only thing they asked was that we incorporate a hops flower into it. So, we hand bent this simple but clear outline. We also fabricated a set of custom hinges and the latch. We topped it off with a silver vein powdercoat finish by the fellas over at Rocky Willis Powdercoating! Thank you for you order Nate and Tiff!

Well, it’s Thursday, we have a couple of new projects to show off, but this awesome weather has put us in a nostalgic mood. So, we’ll do a throwback Thursday! We built these outdoor drink holders holders for two different customers. They are perfect for by the pool or beside your favorite outdoor game! They can be customized to fit your own tastes! Let us know if we can build you a set.

We were able to help a local a local veteran/hero this week with the approach to the front door frame. We built this plate to help with chair access. We want to thank Scott at KMI Metals in Joplin for donating the piece of steel and the guys at Rocky Willis Powdercoating for donating the texture black powdercoat finish. Being able to help out is what makes makes this business worth it.

We were asked to build a pair of custom carts for a local business to move materials around their shop. We built these carts EXTREMELY sturdy! I believe we have may have found the best rolling casters we have ever used. We topped the carts off with a royal blue powdercoat finish from the guys at Rocky Willis Powdercoating. Thank you for your order All Seasons Signs & Outfitters!

Well, since it’s throwback Thursday, this is a twin bed we built a few years ago for our youngest offspring. It is SOLID! This bed will be around for many years to come. We put hand bent flowers in the headboard and footboard and filled in a few places with distressed oak planks. It was topped off with a silver vein powdercoat finish by the fellas over at Rocky Willis Powdercoating.

Last year we had the privilege to make some one of a kind trophies for a group of hardworking archery kids! I guess we made an impression, because we were asked back this year! The time these kids put into their sport is incredible and we were happy to help again this year. We made some slight changes to the arrows and distressed the wood with a lighter stain. Thank you CJ Archery for letting us help you again this year!

Sooo, let’s show another project. This one was a lot of fun! We were asked to come up with a centerpiece for a family photo wall. Our customer knew what she wanted, but she gave us some freedom to do our thing! This was one of my favorite consults, because she said, “It might sound corny, but can you add a sword to it?” Well, I laughed because this was right up my alley! We tied a family ranch brand and knighthood together for their last name “Knight”. I am very pleased with the way this turned out! Our friends over at Creekside Metal Werx, LLC. drew up and cut the brand in the oval and the Knight tag. If you need anything precision cut out give them a call! We then joined the two pieces together with hand bent chain links and added the hand bent scrolls to the top and sides. My favorite part of this build was the sword! This may be my favorite sword to date! Thank you Mrs. Snyder for you order!

I’m not sure where to start, we have been very busy this first part of the year getting caught up and finishing new pieces. I won’t post them all at once so I will string them out over several days. We were asked to come up with a one of a kind wall piece to house these beautiful stained glass panels. We started into it with a basic design, but were given room to run with it. This is the finished design. This is all handcut 1/4 inch rod stock, except for the glass frames. We topped the whole project off with a silver vein powdercoat finish by the fellas over at Rocky Willis Powdercoating. Thank you for the opportunity Mrs. Biesterveld to build this for you!

Merry Christmas from all of us at Back Forty Fabrications! Have a happy and safe holiday season!

12/25/2018

Due to the shenanigans of our employee last year at our annual Christmas Eve party, Back Forty Fabrications has decided to cancel this year’s festivities. We are sorry for the cancellation, but hopefully he will behave this next year and we can resume this tradition in 2019. Thank you.

Soooo, a few weeks ago I shared the first picture in this group and said I was excited! So now it’s time to show off the semi-finished project! I’m proud to introduce the Smoke Daddy 1.0! The cooking chamber is 2’x2’x4’ and the firebox is 2’x2’x2’ cube. The bottom grate gives you 8 square feet of cooking space it also sports a top shelf that is 1’x4’. The doors are double reinforced and it has custom 7/8” barrel hinges. It has dual 3” vent pipes that extend into the cooking chamber. The firebox has a 1/4” steel plate burn surface with 1/2” steel bars to increase airflow under the logs! This thing is a beast and there are many more upgrades coming soon, including side table, front shelf, bottom storage, steel casters, high temperature black paint job, the works! (We had to test it a few times to make sure we were on the right track and it works beautifully!)
We will continue to post our progress on this beast! Let us know if we can help you with a custom smoker of your own!

It may not look like much now, but I am VERY excited about this project!  More pictures coming soon!

This is a custom refrigerator stand we built. We were given measurements and creative control. We individually cut and fit each bar. This was a very sturdy cart that we topped off with a hammered silver finish by the guys over at Rocky Willis Powdercoating. Thank you for your order Michael and Laura!

A while back we built a a custom kennel gate to help a customer keep his four legged friend secure. We just finished up this custom kennel gate for another customer that was in need of a sturdy gate to keep her pupsters comfy in their quarters. We were given creative liberty with this project and we were very happy with the final product. Once again we made our own hinges and latch (store bought are so boring)! While we were checking out the gate project, we were asked if we knew a place to get a handrail. Of course we did! We also built one of our tried and true handrails! We topped off both projects with a white powder coat finish by the professionals at Rocky Willis Powdercoating! Let’s us know if you have a custom gate or handrail need! Thank you for your order Nicole!

Well, hello! It’s been a while and for that I apologize! We’ve been very busy lately! First up is a custom gate for a pool entrance. We were given the basic outline of the cross and the “O”, but we were given 100% liberty after that! Along with the custom design we also built the custom latch and added a youth model of our Jurassic hinges! We topped it off with a black texture powder coat finish by the fellas at Rocky Willis Powdercoating! Let us know if we can help you with your own custom gate! Thank you for your order Carey!

**Warning: There will be a seemingly excessive amount of tagging in this post, but this is what can be accomplished when local businesses work together.**
This week we built our friends over at 96 Range & Pro Shop a custom sign frame. The frame is staked down so that it can be moved if necessary. The guys at Rocky Willis Powdercoating put a killer black finish on the frame that will last a very long time. Lastly, our friends at All Seasons Signs & Outfitters printed up the awesome 4’x 8’ sign that bolts into the frame. You can definitely see this bad boy from the road and there will be no mistaking where their range is located! Let us know if we can help you with a custom sign frame of your own!

You know you are doing something right when the fellas that do your powder coating ask YOU to build them some custom paint racks!! Soooooo, we were very excited to be asked to design and build these racks for the crew down at Rocky Willis Powdercoating! These monsters were built to fit precisely in the ovens. They are light weight but extremely sturdy! The hold up under 500 lbs of steel hanging from them! We’re not sure what their finished color will be, but it will be a quality 3 inch thick powder coat job! Ha! Thank you guys for your order! Let us know if you are in need of custom racks, shelving, etc!

P.S. I forgot to mention the 278 quarter inch holes we drilled in the cross bars so the pieces being painted could be hung!

I just realized I haven’t posted anything in a day or so! I just came across pictures of these little gems! This is another set of our custom outdoor drink holders. This customer decided to choose the Lord’s team, so that is enough said there, and the bases are their initials. The drink holders will accommodate a 30 oz. Rtic, Yeti, whatever tumbler (not going anywhere near that debate) or your favorite beverage in a coozie! Let us know if we can help you with your own custom outdoor accent pieces! Thank you for your order Mr. Tony!

Around the first of the year, we were asked if we could make a set of steel deer antlers. Of course we took on the challenge and they turned out great! This spring we were commissioned to make two more sets! The first set has an arrowhead shaped base with a “S” monogram. The second set was a wedding gift, so we carved the wedding date into the steel backing plate and added a “C” for their last name! I think we are starting to get the hang of our deer antlers. I wonder what’s next elk or moose? Stay tuned to find out! Thank you for your order Mr. Skaggs!

Let’s play catch up some more, shall we? We had the opportunity to add to this amazing stamped concrete sidewalk and staircase on a very pretty house! We matched the architecture of the gabled roof. We topped it off with a hammered copper powder coat finish with clear coat by the fellas at Rocky Willis Powdercoating. That really set it off! Thank you Laura for giving us the opportunity to build this for you!

WHOOOOA, NELLY!!! Apparently I have been a TERRIBLE page host!!! Holy cow, no new posts since March!!! I will remedy that! We are very much alive and well! Let’s see, what’s happened since March, I was elected mayor of our hometown, we had fireworks season, aaaaaand we assisted a smoker in rising from the ashes like the mythical Phoenix! Literally! We posted a video of a walk around of the smoker earlier in the year. We were very happy to assist WiestSide BBQ in getting this bad boy back up and going! It was a loooooong road and it was very bumpy at times, but we got it whipped! I’m not going to bore you with long explanations. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. The first 3 pics are before fire, after fire, and after the Back Forty twist!!! Let us know if we can assist you with a custom project!

Ladies and gentlemen, friends, family, fans, and followers, I was doing a little cleaning today and came across a box of Back Forty Fabrications t-shirts!

We have extra large, large, and small available. Don’t miss out on your chance to pick up one of these custom shirts!

Someone close to our family recently got a new home. We wanted to build them something that was needed. We were told they need more kitchen counter space. We teamed up with another family and built this custom kitchen cart. The cart has 4 kitchen grade locking casters. The top has an overhang that doubles as a eat at bar! The cart is powder coated an awesome textured black, generously donated by the fellas at Rocky Willis Powdercoating! This cart was a fantastic build! We love you nan!

Our favorite butchers (Taylor's Processing) asked us to build them a custom sign. My family has been getting our meat from them and our processing as well for many years. We couldn’t let them have an ordinary sign, so this is what we came up with. The sign is 48” tall by 58” wide. The letters are all hand bent along with the bull skull. We wanted to add the barb wire to the sign (it matches their logo), but regular barb wire wasn’t rigid enough. So, we twisted up our own out of round stock. We topped it off with a standout blaze orange powder coat job by the guys at Rocky Willis Powdercoating. We accent painted over some of the orange to make the skull and barb wire stand out, but as the paint fades, the Tonga will show through! Thank you for your order Taylors!
Let us know if we can help you with you own steel creation!

P.s. we will post an update when it is installed!
