As promised, here’s a look at the finished billet:
All forged out
A quick grind and etch of a window
Another closeup with a flash to bring out more detail. Weird how the flash sort of inverts the colors…
There’s more fun inside! This end cut shows the difference between the two wrought iron pieces that were used. I made sure to alternate them in the final stacking to add some visual interest to the final pattern.
Stay tuned for our next episode, where I’ll start actually forging more than barstock! 🙂
