Rusty Dog Forge, blacksmithing by Harry Foster

This forged ironwork was made for a dear friend that had an old wood Dough Trencher that is quite beautiful, but with no way to properly display it. We agreed that it should be supported in front of a bay window to perhaps provide an ideal home to some plants, the rest being up to me. My first rough sketch when I saw the trencher is the one I went with in the end. The stock is mainly quarter by one and a quarter flat stock that has been textured by a home made texturing hammer. Then there is some 3/8ths round stock to support some leaves, also textured and veined. For another view, follow this link.
