It's what?

Another of my laughable attempts at drawing that the poor blacksmith has to turn into a cracking piece of metalwork.....poor chap.

I'd have thought that any red-blooded blacksmith would have gleamed at that design Thud!

Where's it for?

Thud said...

Scrobs, I tend to be a little light on dimensions when providing details. They are decorative inserts for the top of the gates.

Stop showing off and get on with it, :-), I keep waiting to see if these gates will ever get fitted.

Thud said...

They are proving so difficult and expensive I may keep them in the living room.

An artisan can probably make any sketch work. I'm sure it will look amazing when finished.

Just for you HMS Illustrious the last British aircraft carrier is coming into Liverpool on the 14th and is open to the public over the weekend and leaves about 4pm Monday 18th to the scrappy, maybe you could get the girls to do a quick deal with the RN and put it on lake Brimstage, we will be at the fort and the cannon will be used to salute them and we will see if they can understand a signal from an Aldis lamp that's when they go out and if all goes well.

I was going to say ... (gate details)

But you pipped me to it.

Squire Thud,
So you wrote "do not scale from this drawing" on the reverse? I bet you've got pattern books for the details just like the old craftsmen (I've got some from the 19th century that my cabinet maker Grandfather inherited).
