Small flower

Recommended Posts

20160214_173256.thumb.jpg.a4b6d3820de552A small, but complicated project I thought I'd share.  The forging technique comes from Angelo Bartolucci.  The starting stock I used was 5" of 3/16"x2" flat bar.  The preform was hot cut/sawn out, then each part was forged.  I'd like to try this again and clean up the parts a little better.

Ok... now I can't rotate the image upright.  I swear this site has more issues with photo editing.  Anyone have an idea how to rotate an image on here?

Very nice J.

How are you going to finish them? Have you tried a little brushed brass?

That's a nice flower! First picture didn't show up for me. I like Frostys brass brush idea.

That is very clever. I like the idea of the whole thing being made from one length of flat bar. Yeah, that's nice.

That's a real nice flower. It would be cool to use a brass brush like frosty said.

I have been working on my hammer handles lately and that looks like a nice color wood that you have on your cross pein. Is it just shadow, or did you roast it up a bit to get that color?

Trying to load this photo again, I cut the stem back afterwords.  Thanks everyone, Forging Carver I just coated the handle with linseed oil after making it, maybe two weeks ago.  It is dark from use.  It will eventually gloss over like my older Hofi hammer with repeated use.

I had a look at the Angelo Bartolucci site. That preform is a pretty complicated affair which must have taken a lot of thought. A metal bandsaw would be a handy thing.
