Metal fabrication and design work by Rocket FAB can be seen at several restaurants in Phoenix, Arizona

1534 E Bethany Home Road Phoenix, Arizona 85014

Our fabricators worked hard to bring the owner's vision to light at The Garage Wine and Tap.

Rocket FAB consulted with the owners, and used their expertise to complete this project.  Many mid-century tools and items were procured, befitting a garage of this era.  Rocket FAB's goal was to showcase them as objects of industrial art.

It is easy to admire the craftmanship of an era gone by when you see the beauty of these American-made pieces of machinery and tools on display.  The staff of Rocket FAB executed the work at this site with their own high level of craftsmanship, to make it a job well-done.
