Back Country Metal Works is a lot like many of our customers. The owner, Jason Rutledge, runs a small welding, fabrication and machine shop—and he’s crushing it. His social posts show photos of striking steel tree trunks holding up live edge coffee tables, metal baby gates featuring snowmobiling, dirt-biking mountain life for a chalet, and an entire sled ramp flat deck for a welding truck.

In one recent post of a fence project, Jason gave us a shout-out: “Thanks to FastCutCNC for the quality equipment to be able to cut everything out!”

But bringing a FastCut table into his shop was just the start.

In this customer spotlight, find out how Back Country Metal Works is making the most of their table and their projects as Rutledge grows the business.
