About

Austin Outdoor Studio  is a welding and fabrication shop that caters towards modern design for residential and commercial applications.  We pride ourselves on our quality and craftsmanship.  We’ve worked with some of the top builders and architects in town and have even completed large scale projects like the W Hotel that recently opened in Austin. AOS is a full service shop that can tackle just about anything you can throw at us.  We use the latest in fabrication methods to build our projects.  We utilize 3d design software to bring life to the project before any metal has been cut or welded.   We also own and operate a 5′x8′ CNC plasma table allowing us to create almost anything we can draw or scan on the computer.  AOS is a shop that employs craftsmen who love what they do and still believe in doing quality work.
