    Default Brackets

    I was asked to make some brackets to a photo as reference and some custom dimensions.
    I had to make a set of four. I worked on them sporadically.



    They were collected today by a very happy lady.



    I decided to see how fast I could make another 4. Turns out it takes 2 hrs 20min from first cut to last rivet and a coat of boiled linseed oil.

    I'll take them to Red Hill market on the 1st April and see if anyone wants to trade some cash for them.

    The brackets look fantastic, and once installed even better. If someone doesn't like them, they don't know CLASS!!!!!

    Hopefully I'll sell something at the market this weekend.

    they look great, but must be a bit tricky getting to that screw hole close to the bend?

    What about splitting them at the bend? Could be functional as well as decorative
