I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Beautiful job on the brass, well beautiful job on the whole thing! I hope and pray your shoulder is better, having been down that road with the shots and then finally surgery on my right shoulder, I hope that the shots do the trick for you and no surgery is necessary. Good luck with that. :blink:

This job is finally rollin after a year delay. 1-1/4" post with the corners chamfered, 1/2" x 1-1/4" top and bottom rail was staged up in the home after templates were made and copied to the bars.

Installed a little hand rail to the basement, got some more glamor shots. I may actually be finished with this house after 2 years!

Also got some color on the iron, I use a sandable charcoal black primer (Krylon 1316). Just a dusting, then Scotchbrite hand pads are use to scuff down the rail to bring up highlights of the surface forging. Finally I use Minwax with a brown stain, to really bring warmth to the end project and complement the of the darkened bronze. Hope to install in a couple weeks, pics will follow.

Beautiful work Mike. It is the attention to the details that really set your work apart. That is an interesting blend of products you use in the finish...with great results. I think we all struggle with how to avoid paint. Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the install.

Finally, installed after setting in my shop for two months, this job has dragged out longer than any I have ever done. Contacted end of 07, wait, wait, wait, started end of 09, wait, back on 6-10, wait, back 9-10, finish 12-10, wait, install 3-11. Oh well in the book now! Started install at 10am, at lunch 12:30.

I had to bring this post back to life. True talent and artistic vision. I think we can all learn some fantastic stuff from this thread. Honestly, before this thread was referenced on another site i was never too impressed with scroll work, don't know why. This rail has reinvigorated my appreciation for the beauty of snub end scrolls, the ebb and flow of this rail astonishes me. Just sayin'! Mr Dillon you are an inspiration.
