Making a Fleur De Lis

Recommended Posts

Just a little off the top Frosty. Well some from the sides too. I've never cared for the Joe Dirt mullet look :)

 

Some looks should never have been a thing to begin with, let alone come back into style.....

But then again. We could make you an offer you can't refuse.....

 

Or there's always Tommy two toes way....

At least I never had a mullet. Bi-level yes but not a mullet. For the first time in my whole life I picked a style before it became popular. Seriously I saw a gal with raven black hair to her waist and when I got close enough saw it was buzzed almost clean on most of her head.

That Monday after work I went to my stylist Tanya told her what I wanted and she gave me a few books to look through and talked. I picked a bi-level. Said so right in the book, black and white. Permed for body and I was STYLIN. :)

Less than a year and they were everywhere being called mullets. <sigh>

I just buzz my head now. Style. pffft.<_<

Hello all,

Made this one earlier this year for a friend of my wife. 

It is made out of: 

1 - 1/4 x 1-1/2 x 12

1 - 1/4 x 1 x 11.5

2 - 1/2 sq x 10

4 - 1/4 copper rivets

Hot collared with:

1 - 1/8 x 1-1/2 x 5-1/2

1 - 1/8 x  1/2 x 6ish

It was a fun build, the wife was happy and so was her friend. I had trouble with the fact the two scrolls where off a little but it was a rush job do to time constraints.

Beautiful job, Steven!  I like the addition of the copper rivets.  Well done.

Thanks Guys,

It was  a fun project, I love commissioned work. I just finished up a Suffolk latch and hinge set for a buddy of mine who is making a outhouse for his mother place. I think she has an odd sense of humor, but who knows it may come in handy. It is always nice to know "exactly" what I will be trying to accomplish. I smith after work for 3-4 hours everyday, and for as long as I can on the weekends. Being all set up with a project, stock ready, forge waiting for a spark, is the way I forge the best. I like to have a goal and plan in mind or I find myself standing around wasting time. Also knowing I am ready to go helps me stay motivated after work to head to the forge and get to the getting.

Have a great day,

W
