All that glitters is not gold…

Our fabrication team just finished an incredibly fun project for the Arizona Lottery.

Job description was to “make a bucket full of gold” – 50 custom-fabricated gold bars. The gold bars are being used for a Monopoly game, during breaks at the SUNS basketball games.

So the question that has been around for ages: How does one make gold?

Start off with solid white pine wood, which was cut and routed to shape in our fabrication mill workshop.
