I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Howdy!

 

I am looking for any advice and inspiration on making some hardware for a hardwood box. (rough dimensions 3ftX2ftX2ft)

I want to make it as simple as possible, and I know that I am thinking about a pretty strenuous project. My wood is going to be oak flooring cutoffs, so it will be thin.

 

Has anyone attempted something like this before? Any recommendations/concerns?

 

Thank you!

Decorative hinges, straps, corner brackets, pierce work lock plate, etched plaques, dates, animals/people outlines

 

If you are ever in London, UK, check out the iron work collection at the Victoria and Albert museum!

Look up Lyle Wynn. He has a box built by the good fellows down in Bryan Texas. Yep...those brothers. Well they can tell you or Lyle can. His name has been posted all over here for some time. And his box (built by the guys in Tex) is very neat. It has well proportioned hinges, handles, etc, with some being repousse' lettering.

 

Anyway that box always turns some heads when he brings it out. It was given to him as a birthday gift so you may understand that it is of nice quality.

 

Sorry...no pics

 

 

 

Carry on
