Mid- to high-end homes in the Grand Valley now have access to the same custom work that is seen in Vail and Aspen, and it’s more affordable than you may think.
Grand Junction, CO (Vocus) February 3, 2010
Grand Junction-based Artifex is making a name for itself with its custom woodworking projects – from coffered ceilings to precisely carved handrail fittings – in luxury homes from Western Colorado to Florida. This custom work is made possible with the only tool like it available between Salt Lake City and Denver, the Routech Prisma 110 five-axis CNC, which allows Artifex to cut and carve precisely on any angle or plane.
“The technology offered by the Routech five-axis CNC gives us the quality that sets our company apart from other custom woodworking companies,” Jason Bourget, manager and machine programmer, said. “The capabilities of this machine allow us to consistently perform high-quality custom work for multi-million dollar homes.”
The Routech allows Artifex to program an entire design into the machine -- for example a spiral handrail -- and the machine will rapidly create all the pieces to be fit together perfectly. The computerized router is capable of carving, cutting and drilling on virtually any surface with 0.007” accuracy.
“With this technology, custom work is available to a broader audience,” Bourget said. “Mid- to high-end homes in the Grand Valley now have access to the same custom work that is seen in Vail and Aspen, and it’s more affordable than you may think.”
Artifex is a family-owned business established in 2005 to create custom woodwork, from design consultation and AutoCAD(r) drawings to realistic 3D renderings. Founder Michael Bourget keeps the company’s quality standards high with 30 years in the custom woodworking industry in multiple markets. Artifex continues to provide customers with quality craftsmanship by investing in top-rate technology, including a precise, German-made molder, a large five-axis computerized router capable of carving, cutting and drilling in three dimensions, a knife-grinder for keeping the product sharp and consistent, and more.
