Mike’s Makers: Engraving with a sandblaster
Published at | Updated at
A local father-son team has turned a hobby into a full-time career by using their knowledge of sandblasting to engrave works of art into just about any material. Meet Wayne and Kolton Hubbard in the video above.
Wayne started using a sandblaster to blast rust off of old tools years ago. Eventually, he learned how to use a sandblaster to go beyond maintenance work and actually engrave designs into different materials. So, he started a business.
His business grew and he brought on his teenage son Kolton to help him. The business continued to grow to the point where he had to quit his regular job to keep up with a constant stream of orders.
Mike’s Makers features those locals who make things. From wood carvings to paintings, knives to cosplay and everything in between, anyone who makes anything is welcome on Mike’s Makers.
