The FabLab is the creative and fabrication arm of RBX. We collaborate with home builders, DIY customers, contractors and designers to create custom or refurbished pieces. Our work is driven by our passion for building and tinkering combined with our love for a great challenge. Whether it's matching the patina on an antique lamp we're repairing or building a new hood for your custom range, we have the knowledge and experience to get every detail just right.
Our process starts with your vision. We use 3D design software to produce models and renderings for review before we start building, which enables our customer to make design tweaks and get a feel for the finished product. We work hand-in-hand with customers to educate them about the nuances of working with metal, wood, antiques and other materials. Our ultimate goal is to help our customers solve problems and bring your vision to life with sophistication and style.
