Barrel Bands

Recommended Posts

While looking around for an old wooden barrel for a Halloween display, a friend dropped 5 of them at my doorstep giving me about 30 barrel bands to play with, but i'm at a loss for what to do with them. I was thinking of using a few of them for vise springs, but I think the metal is too thin.
Any creative ideas for these?

They were a traditional material for native american arrowheads after they became available. Of course the old wrought iron bands may have been a bit thicker than the modern mild steel ones.

How about using them in pattern welded billets?

Decorative bands sawn/punched/filed for woodwork projects?

Stock to make repousee leaves from.
