First Project Got Done

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

After months of reading, practicing and workshop building, I've got my first real project done. I know it's nothing special and not a high level quality work, but I did it myself. Those are now on the front wall of my house.

Starting material was a 50 cm long 10mm round stock.

Glad to hear any comments!

Different than most first projects. I congratulate you for doing something that you could get done with decent results and not jumping right in to something that would frustrate you.

I like them, too. Great job!

Thank you all for the kind words!

 

Well actually I've been working on some other stuff where frustration arised bigtime  ;) . Those are all half-done projects, nothing to show yet.

Even with these was a difficult-to-handle part: after one heat when I was drawing the 0 stock, all the blows left hammermarks. All the same right-edge mark. I stopped, readjusted my grip on the handle, concentrated more, but the same kept happening. After the next heat everything went well again. I couldn't erase those marks and they happen to be on the visible side of the number. Maybe need some better planning next time.

 

Bests:
