The 1910 Ironworks can create, make or restore most things. Below are just a few of the projects we have completed for our very satisfied clients in 2017…
This commission (x20 handmade metal tomato stakes) was interesting and the product has now become one we produce on a regular basis for our clients. You can see them all in action at http://www.theloch.net.au/
We make a whole range of kitchen pot and meat hooks, most are made to order.
We also get many requests for personalised, barn hinges, handles, door and window furniture, handmade nails and specific restoration pieces.
Fireside pieces are also very popular, and we make all different styles and sets, from just fire pokers, personalised BBQ implements to toasting forks.
Restoration work is also something we do as lot for our clients around the country. Some even send us original pieces to match or restore via post or over the internet. Like the two projects shown here. Restoring and repairing a ladies English garden fork from the 1930s, complete with a new hot riveted handle, to matching some 130 year old barn hinges from a heritage site shown below.
These fun pieces were produced for a man cave. Original timber boxes from the 1940 were embellished with metal motifs and the famous 1910 Ironworks ‘Man-handles’ made from old tools, in this case recycled spanners. We also had a client recently who wanted a whole lot of hooks and handles made from horse shoes.
The traditional handmade pot or camping fire trivet is still popular and great for going bush and boiling that billy over the open fire.
The restoration, the rewiring and total build of a new Art Deco stand, built from scratch for an original French movie light.
We do Blacksmith demo’s on site, at markets, fairs, corporate events you name it. Here’s one we did at Joadja.
This project was a challenge, see the top montage, this was a badly rusted 1904 Younger No3 Fuel Stove totally restored back to original condition, and repaired with original parts, except the new Stainless Steel flu.
The client wanted to use the stove for heating and they wanted to be able to cook in and on the original stove too, so the old rusted out oven was replaced with a brand new stainless steel oven and shelves. The damper key was rusted off too, so we forged a new one to match the old.
This baby was restored from the ground up for a Sydney client in the Rocks. I also just had an enquiry from another client who wants the same fuel stove restored and rebuilt to use.
So if you like our work and need something made or restored – contact Steve Hogwood on 0402481461 or firstname.lastname@example.org
