A step in a different direction
« on: February 10, 2014, 11:21:50 AM »
I was searching for a door knocker, every one I really liked was hundreds or thousands of dollars... SO... I made one of my own...

This knocker is made entirely from salvage/scrap copper and brass.

If you were to make one of these for sale... around how much would they run?  Just curious.

Thank you for the nice comments, Yes Monika it is a tree of life, and Larissa I do have enough materials to make more, I was thinking around $500, It took me two weeks!

I wouldn't worry about that.   :)  Matt's pretty prolific with the inspiration and execution.
