rosewood and steel mirror frame

This is a custom frame we made with some exotic rosewood. as you can see the wood was too beautiful to square and miter like a traditional frame so we made a metal frame to the contour of the wood, we then used steel blocks in the corners,the steel was ground to the contour of the wood and then flame colored.  as you can see I think the steel corners pulled the irregular wood together.

Wood Stove

Finally finished my wood stove and got it in the house. It is made from 1/4″ steel plate, the door is 1/2″, all moving parts were forged shaped and welded.  no nuts or bolts. It was a fun project, Heats the whole house, great to turn the thermostat offwood stove
