Gerald and Rich,
Here's the pic of the fleur-de-lis detail:
The "bulb" parts started off as 7/8" sq. stock put under my power hammer. The bottom die on the hammer was made of two heavy sold round chunks, put side by side, so that when the 7/8" sq. was set in the die, on the diagonal, the forging makes for that deep ridge on the face. I found it best to just rough cut the bulb and stem out with my band saw and cold finish to shape.

Gerald and Rich,
Here is a pic of the center section:
I started with circular piece of 1/4" plate. I used a thin upper die in my power hammer to get the radiating texture. The words were pounded in with a sort of compass tool with a sq. sleeve to fit my letter punches. All of this was done with a 1/4" hole as the locus for all marks. The large center hole was cut out last with a hole saw.

This is my first submission to any social net working site ever. I suppose my reasoning has been that if it is not pertinent to metal work why waste my time at the keyboard with it.
I am submitting a pic of my favorite work among all the the iron things which have come out of my shop. It's a very simple piece and not so big...only about 23" high.
