Torch it, cut it, bend it, weld it, grind it, polish it.
All it takes is a little bit of heat and a lot of ingenuity to make magic out of metal; if welding is a witchcraft, Norman is a wizard.
The biggest shoe brand in the world was once distributed by motorhome. To serve as a reminder of those humble beginnings, Nike had one repurposed as the focal point of their renowned Innovation Kitchen. Gutted, skinned and rebuilt as a hollowed-out conference room for Nike's brightest designers, this 'bago's "Breaking Bad" days are a distant memory.
You didn't think His Airness would hit the links in any old cart, did you? We customized a trio of golf-whips for Nike's most recognizable athlete, Michael Jordan. Made to haul ass as well as golf clubs, these hopped up carts are decked out with extra lithium ion batteries for a top speed of 32 mph and a range of 100 miles. With their the one-off Jumpman logos and rich finishes, these murdered-out haulers can be found terrorizing country clubs from Vegas to Florida.
Installed at the legendary Condon/Wheeler track in rural Oregon, this medieval-inspired piece stands monument to the godfather of modern running and his wife, Bill and Barbara Bowerman.

Commissioned by the University of Oregon, this highly customized truck hauled the Duck football team around the 2011 Rose Parade, where they served as Official Grand Marshal. This mighty winged truck—the Ducks unofficial mechanical mascot—is a fixture at Autzen Stadium events.

First, go ahead and catch your breath. This gorgeous beast of a Z-car came to Skill Set as a rats nest of a stocker; not running and with most of its vital organs thrown in cardboard boxes. A painstaking rehabilitation—rebuilt motor, new transmission, new suspension, refreshed interior, new wheels, everything— brought this JDM gem back to life as a streetable track monster.
Dreams get scrawled on cocktail napkins; ideas are brought to life at Skill Set. What ties the famed Bowerman Trophy, the one-of-a-kind Oregon Duck truck, the Winnebago in Nike’s legendary Innovation Kitchen and Michael Jordan’s golf carts together? They all became reality in the capable and collaborative hands of Norman Mayer.

When does a sawhorse transcend its simple, original purpose? When it is reimagined as an elegant executive desk in live-edge walnut and precision crafted stainless steel, custom-built for a Senior VP at Nike.
Sometimes the names on the trophies say more than the trophies themselves. Skill Set's handiwork graces a host of trophies that read like a who's-who of sports: Roger Federer. Chip Kelly. Brandon Roy. Kenjon Barner. Phil Knight. Marcus Mariota. Michael Jordan …
Working ain't always easy, but it is always fun. When Nike called for handmade, hand-distressed signage, there was only one way we saw fit to do it. Shotguns, chain and dusty gravel roads. The end result? A product perfectly balanced in refinement and roughness.
