decorative screw heads

Recommended Posts

Just thought i would post an image of these coach screw heads. they were made for some acorn coat hooks i made for some oak doors and the client wanted something different to attach them to rather than plain standard screws.

Hi thanks for the compliments, the screws are bought straight from a fixings company, over here in the uk they are called square head coach screws, i believe in the states they are called `lag screws`!? They are zinc plated, all i do is use a triangle file on its edge, and file in the v shape. You can use a sharpened chisel and put the screw in a nail header tool and forge the pattern in. This is my usual method, but i was in a rush and the fire wasn`t on!!
I used the torch to burn the plating off and just polished them up afterwards.
