Topic tags/keywords: hardware blacksmith furniture iron bronze panicking

I need to have custom hardware made for a piece that I am making and I want it to be good. Does anyone know a good artists or shop that I can contact that would be willing/able to take on the job?

Thanks in advance for all the help!

It would help if you identified where or had your location entered in your profile.

There are blacksmithing associations and of course forums
blacksmiths post on. Blacksmiths can be found in the
various re-enactor communities too.

Google ABANA and you should be able to find an artistic blacksmith in your area.

Is it iron, aluminum or copper (or bronze or brass)? Do you want it patinated? What kind of finish? Kind of a factual vacuum, here.

This is the piece I am reproducing. The hardware is iron. Location of the blacksmith/forge doesn’t matter to me. I have detailed plans I can send anywhere.
