Help! I've got a cool idea for a touchmark, but can't make a straight line with a ruler. After redrawing this is the best I can do. Can anybody do a quick touchup to something that's reproducable on a punch? The YBF is for Yardbird Forge. (yes, I know yardbird is one word, just like the look of the letters this way, but wouldn't mind YF either if it looks right.) And now the darn things sideways.....sigh.
Yesterday I replied to Beth in her thread “School gate panel” with a link to a page in my blog. She said it might be of interest if I posted it here. In this page, I show how I went from drawing in very small scale to forging and installing a grille in a home. Originaly, I made this page as a tool to show clients the work involved in making their dream come through and why they have to pay what they do. There, I show the method I used to forge this grille. It also shows how I was inspired by Fritz Kühn and the Greene brothers. If you are a beginner and have a larger project in mind
