I Forge Iron

Rose trellis


Recommended Posts

My mother asked me to make her a trellis for a couple of rose bushes.  I am primarily a blade smith, but have been playing with a little decorative iron work.  This is the first architectural iron work I've done.  Took way longer to figure out what I wanted to do than to actually build it.  All the scrolls are 3/8" round bar with fish tails, 4-1 ratio, same for the C scrolls on the wide sections.  Dimensions are 7' tall, 9' long, 12" wide and 24" thick.  The square bar is 1/2" with interrupted twist every 12".  It's made in 3 pieces and bolted together for easy transport.  It's arc welded together, but I did my best to put all the welds on the back side and ground flush. The base is 1/4"x2" flat bar in a C shape with 3 rings on each leg with large rebar "nails" about 3' long drove into the ground to secure it.  All in all an interesting and fun project.

Thanks, she liked, said it was more than she had in mind, but I looked at it as a way to try something different.

Not a bouncer, to old and crippled up to be busting heads anymore.  Though if the oilfield doesn't pick up soon I may have to look into it.
