That is very nice work indeed. Lots of hand work for sure. How did you do the top part? Press?

I have a Hossfeld bender that I used to make the knot. The top is just butt welded together. I didn't trust myself to get it square using the bender or a press.

Very interesting design. I am especially impressed with the integral corner bracing at the top of the legs. The braids and knots are impressive too-partly because they appear to have been done cold with only minor tweaks with heat.

Filed away for future reference.

The knot was done cold on the Hossfeld. It was a bit of a pain to keep the outside rod from trying to roll up on top of the inside one. The braids were heated with a rosebud to bend them around. I tacked the 3 rods together at the start of the braid to keep them laying straight, and clamped them between a couple of 1/2" plates. I don't think that was necessary, but it gave me a good spot to hold everything in the bench vise.

Very nice work, Ole Dog.
I do like ornamental iron a lot.

Did you just buy the top flat stock already stamped with the design?

Yes that is some handrail I bought from Kings probably 10 yrs ago. It has been sitting on the rack rusting since.
