Let us know how it works out for its intended use cause if I built that for a "catch stuff" at the door table here, I would be told to keep my shit off the nice table

Thanks Matt. Since I'm the sole occupant of my house, it's probably going to catch a lot of mail and other debris, but I will be the one to clean it up!

Hammering the copper was not hard but it was pretty tedious. I used a little light ball peen so it wasn't physically tough, but there were a lot of strikes. The rest of the bends for the rail were done on my hossfeld, so that made it a lot easier.

That was a big area to texture with a hand hammer. It can be tough to keep a consistent pattern (or lack of a pattern when you want it to look random).

I'm thinking more and more of getting a bender and some kind of ring roller. I tend to do stuff hot on the anvil but that really is not an efficient way to make repetitive parts or hit specific dimensions most of the time.
