Upcycled an old garden bench which consisted of just the cast end pieces as the wooden slats had rotted away. Transformed into this sturdier version to last a lot more years than it did!

Made a replacement blade for a trench shovel. Made in carbon steel (used an old circular saw blade), filled the hole in with same steel and cut a strip to use as filler wire when I TIG welded it in. Forged blade to shape, oil quenched blade edge to harden it. Dressed the edge and fitted a bridge to stop any flex in the blade. (Old blade fatigued and sheared from this)

Complete restoration and some TLC to a beautifully hand made pair of heel and collar gates that were in dire need of attention. The shot blasting revealed the true level of decay, which was sad but also showed a previous restoration and repair of some scrolls. I salvaged what was useable, forged some new scrolls, cold scrolled smaller stuff and rebuilt the pair. One of the brick piers had sunk 1¼" (32mm) so I had to cut and spin the collar before cutting a new heel. Even the latch is original, so I built up the wear with weld.
Leaving to weather before lacquering them. Very pleased that these gates can continue to stand pround at this home for many more years to come.

Customer asked me if I could make this gate to her design as she knew what she wanted. A quick sketch that she did revealed what was described by her, as a " s***m gate ". So, here is 'the gate of life' in anthracite grey.
