Metal Working

With a healthy addiction to welding all types of metals I like to focus my projects to include metal work.

Saved by the Saw

Before you let the pros grind your trees into mulch, just tell them you want the trunk uncut. Let me come and mill it into lumber for your next furniture build. All the lumber I use in my builds is milled by myself at my shop in New Lenox IL.

Who is Ronders?

Lets start with the name, Ron Dyrcz is my actual name, but who knows how to say that name with no vowels? So from the water polo team in high school the condensed version of my full name was born. Ronders.

After spending two years studying metalworking and carpentry in high school, I went right into the trades, while working as a full time photographer. It was easily done since the first time I used a hand saw was 5 years old. Working with my hands was just natural and needed. I have worked along side masters in most all trades concrete, electrical, plumbing, carpentry (finish and rough), HVAC, sheetrock, painters, commercial carpentry, welders, steel fabrication and more. Watching, listening, trying, and failing is the fastest way I learn new skills, and the friends and family I have worked with have all been apart in shaping me into the artist I am today.

My current passion is saving the American Ash tree from the grinders through out the Chicagoland area (southwest burbs) with my chainsaw and bandsaw mills, and custom metal work for my own projects and custom builds.

Live Edge Coffee Lake Table

This design is a custom live edge coffee table with a glass lake in the middle. This will live in the clients TV room next to their L shaped couch. This is made up of three live edge slabs that I joined together with a 1/2′ thick steel bar connecting the three pieces of wood. All attached to three triangle legs to match the top. I call it the trifecta of elements. Wood, Glass and metal. I used my glass scraps to make matching coasters shown in the last picture. Thanks for looking!

Live Edge Wine Bar

This design was made to fit with the table and benches I made for their dining room. With a matching live edge top and three steel cabinets this bar can hold three cases of wine and 50 glasses between the two cabinets. On castors for portability during a party and the perfect mail and key drop at the end of the day.

Live Edge Dining Table with Benches

This table was made from beetle killed Blue Spruce Pine that was milled by myself with my stihl 880 Chainsaw mill. This customer wanted something custom to match his style in a new home. I used 4×2 steel tube and 4″ steel plate to create the legs, and 2″ square tube to create the bench legs. The cross strut between the table legs measures out to a 9″x12″ diamond custom cut timber, and the cross strut on the benches are made from Iron Wood reclaimed from the old Interstate 294 through Chicago land. Yes those sound barrier walls used to be Iron Wood before we used concrete. This table is 8′ long and 42″ wide.

Distressed Kitchen Table

This build I utilized the love the client has for horses, and found an old barn window in western IL for the apron as I made the top with 1″ Oak hand milled into 4/4 lumber by the same owner as the barn window. After prepping the table top I welded together a leg style similar to a picture the client showed me, and inset Oak panels into the ends and middle cross strut. With a Bright white finish and some extra distressing the client was blown away with how it looked like it was meant to live there in her kitchen.

Ash Featured Glass Coffee Table

This table was made from a storm damaged Ash tree. Since they are officially all dead in our region (40% of our canopy) I have a passion for saving and preserving as much Ash as I can. This started as a bench and soon after I finished I realized it was actually a table if I put a piece of glass on top. After I found 1/2 glass 6′ long and 24″ wide I placed it and brought it all together. This table has metal on the cross cut ends of the slab and is 3″ thick. Its for sale on etsy, but Im not sure if I will let it go yet, as it looks too beautiful in my living room at the moment.
