|Standard Metal Works is an ornamental fabrication shop, specializing in, but not limited to, gates, railings and furniture. While Standard’s current iteration is relatively new, its roots are old. Shortly before the start of WWI, the Reynolds family started Standard Machine Shop, located at 10th and Walnut here in Boulder. There, for nearly 70 years, they built everything from farm implements to parts for Apollo spacecraft. Merle Reynolds walked from his home on Mapleton Hill to work at his shop every day well into his 80s, and was as hardworking and honest man as they come. Doing our best to follow the examples of our forefathers, we run an honest shop and produce only quality work.
