don't feel too bad Janet
Giusseppe - Friday, April 4, 2008 - 10:11amArchitectural Gallery | gates
Don't feel too bad Janet .... imagine me in my forge after everyone has gone home and I have ten of these 6m high gates finished and ready for delivery in the morning.
Doing a routine check on the labels (there are five arches each a different size ) I realise that one gate is 35mm too wide due to a small detail in the stonework.
So, alone at about midnight I manipulate the gate onto tressles and proceed to slice the gate from top to bottom and remove 35 mm....weld everything back togethe, grind,sand,zinc coat and stain finish ...my guys found me asleep on the forge floor in the morning and had no idea what I had done...
