I Forge Iron

Christmas gift for my wife...

Recommended Posts

My most ambitious project yet. Pot rack for our kitchen. Made from 1" x 3/16" flat stock. Approximately 4 feet wide, 1 foot deep. Total of 12 forged hooks. All joints are riveted. Heads of square-head lag screws were heated and then textured with ball-peen hammer. Whole thing finished with linseed oil/turpentine/beeswax mixture at black heat with VIGOROUS wire brushing. Wife likes it and, at the risk of dislocating my shoulder patting myself on the back, I think it turned out rather well. Thanks for looking, comments welcome and encouraged...bartpost-5240-12622251829313_thumb.jpgpost-5240-12622251994191_thumb.jpgpost-5240-12622251597386_thumb.jpgpost-5240-12622251400553_thumb.jpgpost-5240-12622252158332_thumb.jpg
