About Dyer Metalworks

Bob Dyer, Houston Metal Artist

For more than 20 years, Houston metal artist, Bob Dyer, has been creating custom, one-of-a-kind furnishings, decorative art pieces and conversation-starting functional art, using a combination of various metals and other materials.

Bob’s strong background in design and metal fabrication led him to start one of the most successful hotrod interior customization shops in Houston, called Inside Rods. Building on years of experience, numerous awards and a strong clientele, Bob has now moved on to the next phase of his creative pursuit, designing and creating his own one-off designs… rethinking furniture as art, transforming the ordinary into something spectacular.

Whether you are looking for a meaningful gift, a completely creative approach to an interior design or furnishing problem, wrought iron gate repair or want to commission a metal sculpture, Dyer Metalworks is more than up for the challenge!

Custom Fabrication

From steel entry doors to custom metal desks and furnishings, Bob has become the “go-to” metal fabricator for several Houston architects and interior designers because of his vast knowledge of metals and the experience to bring their designs to life.

  • Stainless steel rails
  • Custom cabinet and drawer pulls
  • Rolling metal doors and frames
  • Artistic gates and fences
  • Desks, tables, and furniture

Functional Art

Bob’s greatest talent lies in his unique ability to re-imagine everyday objects as art. Blurring the line between form and function, this is where the practical meets the creative, and where useful objects become works of art. What can we create together?

  • Metal wine racks and stemware displays
  • Metal floor and table lamps
  • Custom metal podiums and lecterns
  • Conversation-starting metal belt buckles
  • Commissioned wall art and metal sculpture


I’ve worked with dozens of metal fabricators over the years, but none of them compares to the unique way that Bob Dyer has truly partnered with me to make my designs become reality.
