  8. Hi All. Just thought i'd put a few photos of some work i've done since i started smithing last Nov. Having set up my forge and have a good few tools made i have started designing stuff with a view to selling ( these prototypes will decorate my house. The hanging basket bracket and the towel rack are my design, the towel rack is my most recent project. The rest are from courses i have done. Still all my own work. Cheers Del
