I Forge Iron

Need ideas for forging an 'open book'

Recommended Posts

I want to forge a book to accent a piece of artwork. The book needs to be opened up and approx 3" tall by 4.25" wide by .5" thick. This would be an element that I would use numerous time if I can produce it efficiently. Problem is it needs to have enought detail to be recognizable as a book!!.

You could probably use two pieces of angle iron put together like //. Use wider stock for the cover and use a chisel to put the page detail along the inside piece. Then forge out on the anvil to get the opening and shape you want.

Aarrggg....Frosty you should never have shown me that link on fold-forming.. Like most men, I'm easily distracted by shinny objects -- I want to try that real bad....focus focus

Irnsrgn......PERFECT for what we need to do which is John 3:16

Thanks, Keith

My pleasure Keith, anything to give a fellow an excuse to NOT take out the garbage, etc.

Modified T fold for the book would be where I'd start.

Excellent Jr. Another pic I'm not going to show Deb, my honey do list is long enough already thank you.
