What People are Saying

“ Weld Guy is super easy to work with on custom furniture, he can take your simple concept sketch and turn it into an awesome final product”    

“ Weld Guy delivers a very unique form of industrial art”

Jamie Speaker   Co-President at  J.W. Speaker

Kendall Polster is a brilliant, creative, and industrious artist and placemaker.  He was a trusted partner in both developing the Harley-Davidson Museum and reimagining the Harley-Davidson corporate headquarters.

His original works of art evoke the multi-dimensional nature of the iconic brand, conveying simultaneously freedom and personal expression, individuality and attitude, bond and community. 

Intensely customer-focused, Kendall co-creates the vision, overcomes obstacles, and delivers unique solutions that wow.
Stacey Watson      Harley-Davidson Museum Director  2005-2010 ( opened 2008)

I thoroughly enjoyed working with The Weld Guy on the commission of my wine cellar doors.  Kendall took the time to understand what I wanted, but then he provided amazing creative energy to go well above and beyond my expectations.  Kendall created a design that incorporates the theme of the room with unexpected surprises.  His ingenious locking mechanism continues to both puzzle and delight guests every time they see it.  I would recommend Kendall for any job that requires creativity, craftsmanship and professionalism.

I have worked with Kendall Polster (Weld Guy) on numerous custom projects for the past 16 years in my various different marketing positions at Red Bull and MillerCoors. From creating trophies, to furniture, to bars, to signature pieces. To say he has been creative would be an understatement. His work is always on time, he is always collaborative throughout the process, and the end product has always exceeded my expectations. I cannot say enough about the quality and caliber of his work. I highly recommend him.

“When Pat and I set out to open Central Standard Craft Distillery we found there were a number of things that were out of our skill-set, at the top of that list was designing our physical space.  As most in our shoes would do we met with a number designers and architects.  Kendall Polster/Weld Guy rose above the rest because of his creativity and ability to work within our timeline.  He brought a vision and the necessary solutions that made it easy for us to manage our project.  He worked within our budget, was timely and added extra components that brought the space together better than we could have ever imagined.  In fact, we receive so many inquiries from customers about our space we asked Kendall to install a business card holder by our door with his cards!  We would recommend Kendall Polster/Weld Guy to anyone willing to listen!”

C2 Is a staffing firm that serves the creative community. Daily our clients and potential talent visit the office for classes or for interviews/software assessments. We worked with the Weld Guy to design an amazing reception desk, furniture and fun items for our office that give the space one-of-a-kind flair. From signage to tables, from chairs and couches to crows, our brand personality is reinforced by the Weld Guy’s craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Kendall & the Weld Guy Team make Christmas dreams come true!! My father is an avid fisherman. Twice his team have  welded custom gifts that make him the envy of his fishing buddies! The first was an ice fishing side table, with a frosted glass top with a clear circle… through which you could see a welded fish, sea weed and twigs. Brilliant!! The second was a frame with welded seaweed that complemented an illustrated bass perfectly.

He is precise in all his custom work, creative, talented and understands the needs of his clients.  He isn’t just another pretty artist. Hoping he will build our next 7 restaurants.”
