YETI Ramblers..... A marvelous feat of science-meets-beverage-holder.
The YETI brand seems to have exploded into the market as a forever favorite when it comes to superior drinkware and coolers.

We just completed a job for Bespoke Millwork that we wouldn't have been able to do a couple of months ago because we didn't have the equipment. Their job required laser engraving and laser cutting 5 pieces of 16 gauge stainless steel that you see above. Three of the pieces were 29" wide and 42" tall, and the other 2 pieces were large odd shaped cut-outs. If you have been reading my blogs for a while, you may remember the one where I introduced a new piece of equipment, a 250W Coherent laser (we were getting it set up in the picture below), We put it to use and laser cut all 5 pieces.
As we come to the end of another week and the weather is scheduled to be gorgeous this weekend, I started to think about spending time outside. When you go camping or on day trips, it seems that the new beverage containers and coolers of choice are the ones made by Yeti. The Merriam-Webster online dictionary has a short definition of the word yeti: abominal snowman. Yep, that's it. Short and sweet. Wouldn't it be great if everything in life was that simple? I guess they call their product Yeti because it is suppose to keep your beverage "as cold as science will allow."Read More
