Hello everyone, I am very green to metalwork. I have a question regarding one of the most basic tasks, riveting. I am making a white oak door for a neighbor. She wants it to look like something from Tolkien, and I'm excited because it challenges me to learn a lot fast. The door has a full radius top, and I would like to fasten the doors parts with rivets. Is this a task where the cold rivet comes into play? I have a bunch of wrought iron gate parts I could use, and it seems to move easy enough. What is the proper way to rivet wood without scorching it? Thanks for any advise/experience.
