That coat rack could do well at some venues.  Looking good.

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

I have some AR500 plate that used to be a shooting target but somebody shot at it with the green-tipped 62 grain NATO .556 rounds and cracked it. It's been sitting in my garage because I didn't know what to do with it. I'll bet that clever is very tough and now I have an idea.

Your pans look perfectly round. Did you use wood forms or dies, or stakes? Which hammer did most of the work?

I used a hot roll burned out piece 1/12 thick X whatever diameter it was.
It was a slug I got from a burn shop.
I used a Cross peen only.
Forged hot.
These are the first and only two that I have ever made ( made from some scrap copper sheet that found its way into my shop )
Purchased the tin and flux from Rotometals .

I have some sheet copper. Did a small dish. Not that easy to get round.

I really like the look of these pans. Makes me want some eggs and Bacon.
