Custom Iron Work: Iron Railings, Iron Gates, Furniture & More in Boise, Idaho

At Idaho Forge, my main focus is ornamental wrought iron work from projects such as iron railings for decks, iron gates, and iron stairways to kitchen items such as cabinet pulls and pot racks. I enjoy doing all types of furniture: end tables, coffee tables, chairs, stools, mirrors, coat racks and exterior items such as trellises, plant hangars, fountains and all sorts of yard art.

All of my wrought iron work is done by hand using the several anvils I own. I also incorporate my 25 lb Little Giant trip hammer, which is over 100 years old and a 95 lb air hammer that I hand built myself. Occasionally, I employ a helper apprentice in the shop.

Vince is an artist!! I was so thankful that he could make my vision come to fruition. Vince’s conscientious attention to my design and quick response to my request, made all the difference! I love my gate and am so appreciative of Vince’s hard work on it. The end product is well-made, beautiful, and he even installed it with care. Thank you, Vince!

“I wanted to let you know what a great job you did on my handrail.  It goes perfectly with the house.  It looks absolutely wonderful. Thank you also for completing the job for a reasonable price and in a timely manner.”

We met Vince at the Eagle Saturday market a couple of years ago. We needed a gate for a breezeway that connected our shop to our house and led to our backyard. We chatted with him for a bit and decided to see what he could do with our ideas. He came by and my husband and I gave him our version of what it should look like. We unfortunately both had our own version. Vince took our ideas and drafted up a few ideas and somehow one of his drafts was a perfect fit for both of us. Vince did a great job on the whole project. You can tell he has been doing this for a very long time and he has passion for his work. We couldn be more happy with our gate and the work Vince did. We would not hesitate to refer him for any project.

At this time of my life, I find I need assistance walking. We purchased our dream home, however there was a problem for me. The patio steps leading to the backyard were very difficult without a railing. I contacted Vince. I asked for something brining nature into the design and he created a functional work of art. I will forever be grateful and so happy we worked well together.
