This collection of projects requires only a few simple tools and a basic knowledge of metalworking to complete. The wide assortiment of ornamental designs presented can be forged using inexpensive scrap metal, into beautiful yet fully functional items for around the house, to be given as gifts or sold at craft shows and bazaars. Step-by-step illustrated instructions describe how to mould decorative plant stands, hanging lamps, vases, scrolled brackets and hinges, wind vanes, letter racks and openers, and more. There are also projects for the kitchen: hammered bowls and trays, napkin rings, tableware, escutcheon plates with handles, pastry cutters, and a variety of accessories. Following a brief introductory section on special metalworking techniques, the book provides self-contained directions and line drawings for each project. And while no heavy bending or welding is necessary, many of the projects can be enhanced by readers who have experience using a propane torch.
