It's been quite a while I know, G'day all who recognise this poster. I have an urgent need to own one of these mulch forks but do not have the means or the justification in buying one. I thought perhaps someone might have a clue on the process of forging the fork from a single piece as the sturdy ones seem to be.
here are some of the things ive made for a kind of garden crafts type thingy next week, they are stakes for holding climbing spreading shrubs up, and victorian style plant supports, and also some of the little curled round candle holders for the indoor bit. ive also made some rose trellis things but they will be finished tomo. i wonder if they will buy them!... ive not tried this before, where you just make a little pile and you have not actually got a customer... we will see.. :) i tried making the stakes with smoother curls at the end and i prefer them. Also i tried the just doing one side of the material like phil suggested before, and i dont think ive done what he meant :) but it was my first attempt, has given me loads of ideas, and i RRReally liked the way it made a beautiful natural curve in the steel. and i love the texture - i could not get a good photo, the sun is very bright today, but the texture is very expressive has much potential and looks very pleasing :) thanks for that phil :) the photo on the end i have to show you, my 8 yr old daughter thought up and sewed this coat for one of the dogs whilst she was up early last week making my mothers day breakfast - her creativity and confidence to try to make things makes me laugh my head off, i absolutely love it in her!! i learn continuously from the children, and their attitude.!
