I am a product designer and CNC machinist with a background in marketing. After design school, I worked for some largely successful marketing companies until deciding to move to Hawaii to start a family.
Through a unique series of events I began this journey after meeting the owner of a small CNC machine shop and a partnership was formed.
We've grown into our own shop and primarily focus on our own brands, Ti2 Design and HiTex Gear.
We commonly work with many semi-exotic materials including titanium, brass, copper, stainless steel and more.
Occasionally you'll find offerings in exotic materials such as mokuti, timascus and other unique materials we come across.
Distintive Core Finishing Options
Limited Release Finishing Options
Starting with our first Hardinge HC lathe, we've become big fans (and added a few) Milltronics mills including a pair of RW-15s, a VM2016 and HM20. We also have a few GT-27 lathes running mostly pen parts along with a 4+2 Hardinge GS 200 MSY lathe. Our trusty Takisawa lathe and Bridgeport mill round out our manual tools.
Here in Hawaii, we don't have the option for speedy service on any of our machines. We do almost all repairs and maintenance in-house, ourselves.
Our family run business demonstrates family values at its core. In addition to myself, our team consists of an artist, a photographer, finishing and production specialists and a machine / IT tech. I'm hands-on and involved in every aspect of the business.
Thanks for taking the time to learn about us,
