Happy Labor Day fellow smiths. I'm here to show a project I just completed and delivered to its new owners today. 

Started with getting a copy of their logo and transcribing it to its new scale.

The scale I chose gave me 2.5" with font so started cutting pieces to assemble the main part of the logo. 2.5"x0.25" flat mild steel.

Getting letters welded up and cleaning the welds. Technically they are forge welded, as in, they are welded (MIG) and then I forged them.

Completed sign, might be hard to see but edges are all textured then used carnauba wax while still hot to help protect and darken the letters. Custom standoffs welded to the backside to set the letters off the backplates for depth.

Nice sign, simple, elegant, and attractive. I like it.  

Uh, thinking about it, shouldn't those be letters "Forged Welds" rather than Forge Welded?
