    Some Quickie Iron Work




    A slight modification to the procedure I used for some finials a little while back. Quick and easy. Anyone interested in learning how?

    The twisting is easy. Consistent, straight, even twists, that is another matter. The ability to heat at least a third of the length so your heat can be moved down and more than one twist at a time helps.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Last night I was asked about how to make a basket in the middle of a spindle. This needs a little work but it's getting there.



    Anyone want to take a shot at duplicating this one? It's really quite easy. In fact it is faster than the twisted spindles.
