I have been asked to make a candle stand for my daughters wedding. A unity candle stand. This is a great project and will mean a lot to me to make. They want a RUSTIC arbor to. That will be next weekend.
I have been wanting to try a few basket techniques and you will see those in the video. One is where you twist wires one way and then the opposite and they make a wonderful looking basket weave. The other is an old method of slicing a square bar along both sides and doing the same. I cheated on that one.
Here is the lower half completed in an afternoon.
A noose knot made with a rosebud torch.
And the completed basket. Not bad for my first. I need to finish this weekend as the wedding is in a month.
I still have to make the top and figure that part out. This is the biggest project I have forged yet and has been a blast.
More to come. Please stay tuned. FYI summer is here and there are more choirs for me to do. My posts may be a bit more spread out. But thank you for looking at my page and come again.Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.
