Show me your forged frog!

Recommended Posts

OK, forged or welded, whatever. I have tried forging frogs a couple of times with limited success. This one is an attempt at a green tree frog (big head, slender body) and the starting stock was an old railway fish plate bolt about 100mm long. The skirt on the head of the bolt is peened back and flattened,  and the threaded section split to forge the back legs. Had to weld a bit of light rebar on for the stumpy front legs. This is a first try using the bolt; I can see where it needs improvement and I think I can do better next time.

Anyone else given it a go?

By the way, newbie here as well. A photographer by profession, I usually travel around, camera in the trunk and my dog at the backseat, secured in his dog crate. I’ve been going around the various states looking to take the best scenic photographs ever. Cheers!
