About Nic

I’ve had a knack for metalworking ever since I took a welding class in high school – though I’ve had a good run through an adventurous career in aeronautics, flying helicopters, and jet engine maintenance with the US Air Force – I’ve finally found my way back to my first love: taming metal to create metal art.

Most of my metal sign designs are inspired by nature, music, animals and my customers’ ideas. I love the imaginative aspect of taking something from a concept to a piece of metal art that someone will treasure forever. I am not afraid of working hard or getting dirty and I love every minute of it.

When I’m not taming metal, I spend my time hanging out with family, friends, my wife and our dogs – usually doing something outdoors…which is another thing this Montana boy can never get enough of.

Thank you for checking out my shop, Grizzly Custom Steel – I’m excited at the opportunity to share my unique trade with you. 

-Nic Merchant,
Metal Tamer
