Not rely much i could put in the thread :lol:
All of it was done by eye and a oxi-acetylene torch for bending and welding
Im very glad out it turned out the timber goes very well with the silver just what i hoped for :)

All welding/bending skills were learnt in fas two weeks before i started so its not professional but its ok

I would like to start makeing them but i wouldnt know what to charge for it as alot of gas is used and time. I thinks its just a one off for now. Al i can say if you want one try and make it as it turns out way cheaper.

Fecking hell, cracking job for someone who only learned thats for sure!
For making them, work out your costs & add a bit on, but if you were to start a pipe bender would be more economical than gas
