Here is a peice i just finished up for the Repair Days auction at the Metal Museum in Memphis, TN. Its about 28 inches tall made from mild steel. Forged and ground to shape and then alot of sanding and polishing. Pictures are not the best but if I find some better ones ill post them as well.

I love this piece! nicely done. It should do very well at the auction.

My older brother usually helps with the repairs on "Repair Day" at the MM. I have wanted to go and help my self but life and my day job keep getting priority....one of these days I'll make it. His name is Howard Dean if you are there for that portion of the weekend, tell him I said Hi.

dan - i like the lines its good and fluid- would be interested to see it as work in progress, like how much grinding sanding you did, and where etc - do you have any more photos of how it all went along...?

That's an exceptional piece Dan. Wonderful flow, nice swoopyness and balance. I take it this is going on public display? Folks are gong to just love this piece, I sure hope you can keep up with orders.

It found a good owner at the repair days auction and helped out the musuem which makes me happy. I wish I could describe the construction breifly but it was a pretty complicated doing some forging and then some grinding and then some forging again and some more grinding. Ill try and put together a series of photos the next time I do something along the lines to help explain. Once again thanks for the comments.
