finished 1 piece bit

I finished the 1 piece bit yesterday.

I learned a lot on this one, and glad I built it. It gives me a lot of ideas for using larger diameter steel and will probably build one out of damascus in the near future.
 Starting out simple saves a lot of time in the long run, I now know some things not to do, and some things I should have done. When I need to do a fancy one, I've got a little less chance of adding to my scrap pile.


  1. Looks great! Man, even the holder there looks perfect! ...and that picture of those spurs a couple posts back-WOW...meant to comment on that...and I always like seeing cattle eat!

  2. Thanks Ryan. On the cattle, try as I might, I can't make money on a skinny cow. Haha.

  3. lol...I hear ya! I heard once... the best fence and shelter a person can build is having fat cows.
