I am making this door handle for the door between my forge and tool room. It started out as a 12" long piece of 1 1/8" round pure iron. Since we didn't have the correct size we upset (drove it back on itself) the bar till it was 6" long. We then drew the ends down till it was 7" long. Bent it into a "C" shape and pulled tabs out of the ends. The tabs were then clamped in a vice and the piece was driven down to give rectangular bar with two tabs on the back. The material on the bar was then blocked out and the detail was painstakingly chased in. I still have to finish the face, pedestal, and belt.
