  1. Here is my first go at a Rose Im pleased how it came up Hope it works LOL
  2. This is my second rose. I wanted to try something a little different than cutting the petals out of sheet copper and wondered how small I could go and still get a decent result. I started out with four pennies, flattened, traced a scaled down pattern and went to work. I think there are things I could have done a little better, but overall am pleased with the results. You can't much cheaper than four cents and a piece of ground wire. Hope you enjoy.
  3. Another couple of christmas gifts. This was my first attempt at making these and im pretty happy with how they came out. My only issue is that when i took the pieces from the forge and quenched them into the water the copper turned black. It was a tough black that took alot of hand sanding to remove and even so there is still some there. Anyone have any tips for me on how to either avoid this happening or how to more easily remove this stuff.
  4. This is the actually rose I ended up with, still snapped off some petals but I'm getting closer.
  5. Here's another picture of my fourth attempt at a Russian Rose.
  6. This was my fourth attempt at a Russian Rose. The first two tries ended with the petals snapping off.
  7. My wife's birthday is Monday. And due to some unexpected bills that we got hit with recently... she insisted I not buy her anything. Well, today was the first day I have been able to light up my forge in several weeks due to combinations of weather and my bill-paying job. So I made this rose for her. Well, first I made a rough, but functional tenon tool to square up the edge of the tenon I was planning to attach the petals to the stem with and ground an old beat-up pair of pliers into what I am calling my petaling pliers. (Sorry for not taking a pic of them, might do that tomorrow) The pliers are almost like stubby, fat scrolling pliers/tongs... but allow me to grip the edge of the petal better for shaping it (imho). http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37712-birthday-rose-1/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37713-birthday-rose-2/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37714-birthday-rose-3/ The petals are made from discs I cut out of a scrap piece of car fender with a holesaw. The stem started as 3/8" round. I used my dremel tool to cut the discs into three basic petal shapes on each. Then made the tenon on the 3/8 round to fit the 1/4" hole the holesaw left in the center of each of the petal sets. put the five petal blanks on it and peened the tenon to hold them on. Heated it up and shaped the petals, then drew the stem down.

    Birthday Rose 1

    Wanted to give my wife a rose for her birthday. My first ever rose.
  11. This design was suggested to me by a family member. This is my first try. My wife snagged it as soon as she saw it. I'm glad I got a pic first. Critiques welcome. Thanks for looking. Mitch
  12. Good Afternoon, I joined this forum and promtly found myself browsing briefly through each forum section, and was inspired by the first sticky on the copper page. I realised that I should get stuck in with what I have and to stop waiting when I can afford the right tools and have 'this' or 'that'. So I started pulling out things which I have been lugging around with me for years, looked for some scrap copper pipe from the geyser we put in and just got stuck in, and here is the result.
  13. This is the first project I have shared here. In my attempt to make something marketable and fun I finally found to projects to put together. This is a "Russian Rose" and a Skull I forged from a RR Spike. This is the first one I have ever done. It might be the first one ever. I have never seen one before. I'm glad to have the opportunity to share it. Any feedback or methods of making it better is appreciated. Thanks
  14. I went to a local ABANA meeting (first time there) to pick up some coal. I had the kids with me, but decided to step inside anyway. While watching one of the guys I asked what he was making. Turned out it was the beginning of a rose. I didn't get to see much of the process, but decided to give it a shot anyway. Here is the outcome. Here is a video of it as well (not the process).
  15. I just wanted to start a thread about my experience Saturday at Stans house. Got there he showed me his shop. and well..............i text my wife and told her i was movin in with Stan....lol She didnt find it quite as comical as i did...lol But after talked a lil bit he drug out some clay. Im thinking great. play doh....lol but it helped alot. never seen a diagonal peen hammer before. and working the clay with that hammer gave me some understanding of what it would do to the metal. Made a fork with the clay just to see how bad my hammer control was...lol. Any of ya that seen my 1st youtube vid know that its BAD!!...lmao But workin with the clay helped me visualize what the hammer hits will do. so im actually gonna do some more of that each time i get a hammer to learn a lil about its own personality. Feel free to watch the latest youtube vid. You will still see i am horrible at hammer control. but you will also see that i already started to improve with Stan helpin me out. Still got a long way to go. but heck of a lot better then a week ago..lol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QyX1XA5CO8 Video is just a compilation of some of my hammering. Wanted to do a full video of what it took to make the rose form a horseshoe you see in the pic. I MADE THAT!!!! sorry. lil excited. wasnt expecting to make something so cool the first day i met him...lol. But he would hammer his own horse shoe so far. t hen stop and coach me on how to do mine. then heat his up again take it little further. then coach me on catching mine up. Was an excellent class. Made it real easy to learn. I want to again thank those in the chat that told me about Stan. I was seeking someone close enough to me to show me how to do this right. Im looking forward to working with him again. and look forward to meeting more of you later this month and then at the hammer-in. John Lemmerman
