  1. This is a set of trusses for a pergola. All of the fillagree in the field using 3/8" round rod. 7 diffrent scrolls where used. There was a ton of fit and finish work. The truss sit on a 4"x4"x1/4" beam supported by 4-6"x6"x1/4" @ 7ft tall. The pergola is 12' wide 15' tall. There are sides and 2 gates. Which will be the next phase.
  2. Hi, A couple of weeks ago I made a scroll jig, mainly for creating touching c-scrolls... apparently it can do other stuff as well :). I made this trivet as a Christmas gift and I think it came out ok. I'm not 100% happy with the chunky collars though, but I used the stock I had around... To help the assembly I tack welded the tree pieces together before adding the collars. To be totally true in regards to traditional joinery I should probably have added collars to the three touching parts in the center as well. Forging and adding collars for the first time - check. Stock used: 10mm square and 25x4mm for the collars.
  3. I'm pretty new to blacksmithing (about 7 months) and I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to make decent looking, semi-consistent scrolls for a while. If I'm trying to make 3 scrolls, one might look ok but, the other two look like they were made by a one armed blind person. Nothing has been harder for me to grasp so far. I have watched a bunch of videos and they all make it look really easy. Clearly, I am missing some fundamental step or steps. If any of you could pass on some wisdom regarding scroll work I would be very appreciative.
  4. Built 2 matching balcony railings that will got on a building in Downtown Kellogg, Id. Hand drawn design, which i then text a pic to the customer for approval...... i do this because that is as advanced as I get. I don't do CAD..... I do hot steel. My apprentice and I then hand forged all the scrollwork and organic elements and laid them out. Once we got the 2 matching main panels done then we started on the 4 matching side panels. I am really happy about this project and how it turned out. It took about 90 hours to produce. I will post pictures of it installed. I have an instagram account that I post 90% of my work on if you want to keep up with what is going on in my forge.
  5. Here are some lights i made, 6 in total. they were 29" tall be 17" wide and weighed about 80lbs Had to had forge over 250 pieces. 6 sided with the back 3 sides solid so no direct light shines into the Gazebo.
  6. Angie's Foot Stool Created: 1/16/14 Materials: Black Walnut, Iron, 3/8 round rod Weight: 6 pounds So I was visiting my wife at her work and noticed that Angie, one of the ladies my wife works with, had her feet on top of about a 4" box filled with catalogs of some sort. After asking why, Angie, slightly red in the face told me how she feels more comfortable at times with her feet elevated. Not sure, but this injustice seemed to bug me, most likely the OCD going from 0 to 100, so I said, " I can fix that!!!!" like somekind of low buget super hero. 3 months later!!!!?---- sorry none of my "super hero" powers has anything related to speed. I have a few slabs of 2" and 3.5" black walnut so I cut a 12"x18" block from the 2" slab. I then cut some lengths of 3/8 round bar 10.5" long. 4" from the end of the rod I started to draw the rod out to a taper until it was 6" long. After both tapers where drawn out the rod was 15.5" in length. As my usual habit I textured the full length with heavy hammer blows using the corners of the hammer and horn to drive deep dents in the iron. I know, I know, but I love hammer marks, they are raw, bold, and beautiful. Its my piece so I get to do what I like--------- Hammer that thing!!!!! O yah it happened, just like that!!! Ok,,,,,, to much caffine maybe, moving on...... I then folded the rod in half lining up the ends, bent them at 120 degrees, formed the scrolls together and curved the tips out in lines that flowed nicely. I drove the iron down on to my hardie hole cutter to split the 2 ends apart again, placed it in the vice and bent the scrolled ends away from one another until the lines formed a 45 degree angle that would accommodate the corners of the walnut slab. I created some flat areas, and punched some mounting holes, wire brushed, and treated with bee's wax. Due to the fact that shoes will be placed on the item all the time, I treated the wood like the iron. I melted bee's wax and dripped it all over the wood and used a heat gun to melt it, which allowed the wood to soak up the wax, wiped off the excess, screwed the legs on, a little grinding to get it to sit with no wobbling and a foot stool we have. Angie was very thankful, and put it to use right away!
  7. I haven't had a towel holder in my master bath since i moved in. I figured I would give one a shot. This was the first time I create a full circle with the track anvil. Also a first for the split scroll. After doing the wrap (or twist) on the ring I'm finding that I'm not a fan of the look. i might make a new ring. Check out a video of it being made HERE.
