We found this old wagon wheel last year. I'm pretty sure it's wrought iron. Haven't really figured out what to do with it. Thought y'all might have some suggestions. Click image for larger version - Name: 1441997653120905974557.jpg, Views: 10, Size: 1.84 MB

Just make something!

A quick hit on a grinder will tell you what it is.  If it is wrought, generally wagon wheels where of a low quality but that type of wrought has a very nice grain.  If you want to you can cut it into pieces, clean them up and make a "Damascus" billet.  Wrought welds up very easily.  With a nice billet then you can make other things.

Knife guards, bolsters and other knife decorative things. My wife's grandmother is an antique dealer and has had two old wagon wheels and a part of the carriage in her backyard for years that I've been trying to figure out a way to get a hold of.

Just ask her for it. Tell her what you want to do. The worst she can say is no.

That is my plan, to just ask her for it. She has sometimes been generous with me before but she is kind of a hoarder. I need to figure out a way to ask her that is likely to make her want to say yes. Because it's just sitting in her back yard rusting away, overgrown by weeds.

Tell her you'll make something from it for her.  [wink]  That usually works.
