Our structural beam / joist hangers are fabricated from 3/16” metal, or upon request 1/4” thick for a heavier
shear load. These construction hangers are designed to suspend a beam, joist, or rafter from a beam, wall or
post. These wood connectors come in many different styles, such as a concealed hanger, or fully or partially
flanged. We fabricate these architectural buckets in many design choices. If a custom design is needed we
only charge a $25 design fee one-time fee for the CAD drawing. As well as our unique decorative designs, we
also offer a choice of hand hammered textures and hand painted patina finishes which make our hangers one
of a kind and a beautiful asset to your home.
Our hand hammered iron saddles and buckets are a structural way to attach a post to a beam with a unique

structural integrity is not compromised while adding a designers flare. We have large selection of designs to
choose from, as well as, different hammered iron textures and patina finishes. Don't forget to browse or
