Flywheel Industrial Arts is a collaborative Design and Fabrication company based in Montpelier Vermont. It was founded by three craftsmen Benjamin Cheney, Chris Eaton and Jesse Cooper, working in their respective fields of welding, blacksmithing and woodworking. They combined their specialties into a hybrid workshop that is creative and entrepreneurial, and currently includes 5 craftspeople in addition to the founders. Their wide ranging practice includes computer-aided design, modern fabrication methods in wood and steel, and their underlying centuries-old trades, which allows them to develop projects from public art pieces to interior and exterior architectural built-ins and furnishings.
