Makin' some gates.
For the Royal Botanical Gardens - Rock Garden, in Hamilton Ontario.
Mike recently took a course called "Making and Impression with your Hammer" taught by Tom Latane at Touchstone Centre for Crafts in Pennsylvania. The course covered forging hammers out of wrought iron with forge welded steel faces, chasing tools and chasing techniques. The photo above is a group shot off all the hammers forged by the students in the class - centre hammer forged and decorated by Tom Latane.
