Popular Post wtnhighlander Posted February 6 Popular Post Report Share Posted February 6 I haven't posted a journal for a while, and there won't be much to this one. LOML requested a wall mount coat rack to go in our front entry, and to match the mirror frame I made for the same hallway last year. Although the woodwork is straight forward, I thought someone might like to see a little complimentary metal work. The hooks of the coat rack started life holding down the rails. Cutting wheels on a grinder make me nervous, ever since a co-worker had one explode, and bury itself into his thigh. Face shield is mandatory PPE for this step! And here we have five beheaded rail spikes. My final step for today was to switch wheels, and grind away all the rust and burrs. I also did a little shaping to give the heads a little more uniformity. Spikes are pretty soft steel, and could be "power carved" with a little effort. That's all for today... 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
