Custom fabricated plant hanger installation

I made three plant hangers a little while back, now it’s time to finish them off by curling the ends of steel on them, literally.

So I made a jig to bend the flat bar stock that needed curling.

I heated up the ends of the flat steel bar with an oxy acetylene torch and used the small forked end of this jig to hold the red shot steel as I bent the ends into a curly que.

My client wanted the hand bent look and he got it! I can also make these curls identical when making things like this in my shop.

Here’s two more pictures of the hangers in action.

Here’s a video of all three plant hangers installed along with a few other things I’ve been wrapping up as well.

Thanks for reading.
More to come.
