Railing finished!!!

Recommended Posts

Here is a railing me and the other guys at the shop have been working on for the past 5 or so months (not steadily, a couple days a week). I forged all the cap rail, all the knife/scythe shaped elements(except for one section), and all the round bits on the end of the 3/8" bar, and made all the rings. The dots on the end of the 3/8" were all doubled over then forge welded, so they are 3/4" round and about 1/4"-3/8" thick, all the forged elements are 5/8ths round. The forged elements all have real knife geometries, thicker spines to the inside of the curves, edges to the outside. The lamb's tongue end was forged by my other boss Tim. The railing was designed by my boss Rachel, I forged everything to her designs. Everything is to code also (what a nightmare that was). all the 3/8" bar was dimpled wherever it criss crosses and was silver soldered by the other guys, everything else was Tig welded by the other guys Joe and Frank. It was a very fun and interesting, challenging as well! 9 panels in all, total of just under 31 feet.

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Dang Sam!! It's very beautiful! I'd be very proud to have a hand in that. It's almost got somewhat of a musical quality to me. Kinda wierd for me to think that but thats what I "see". Amazing work dude... Thanks for showing us.

Who; me?

That is what music should feel like, it flows and has its rests, and beats, there are places where it is acceptable to have a lack of something, because it makes the piece better.

 

imagine a wall of iron, then compare it to this , we can all see this is much cooler, althought looking at a massive solid iron wall would be pretty cool.

this phenomena may be know by the name synesthesia. many artist who are in tune with the elements of their work will convey a message detectable by some as being stimuli from another sense manifested in a way unlike its original form. :wacko:
