My youngest daughter is very pregnant and wanted a shelf to hang the baby stuff from. My wife and daughter love the rustic looking stuff. I will make it for them when they ask. That produced this little project.
A slide show of the making of the shelf.

If you are interested some of the forging of the hardware.

Thank you for your time.
There is a bit more at my website as well.

Hi Dave,

Please can you re-embed the second video at the correct size as half of it is off the screen. Thanks.

You bet. No major burns yet. I removed the hair from my left hand. And I still want to pick up the workpiece. Thats a big NO NO.
Always

Thank you very much Andy.
Don have a good friend of mine that has made a small fortune on that stuff.
I am not going down that path.

Thanks Joe.
And yes. I have been off work a week now. Most of that is shop time. And yes my arm is burning right now. But I will be at it again tomorrow. That is what aspirin is for.

Thank you Joe. It has taken me a while to gather the few tools I have. But as I have been told. If you have three things. Anvil, hammer and a hot cut, you can make all the rest.
Good luck!
