Forging the Hooks 12/4/18

Today started the forging of the various components of the fire table. I was able to get through 3 of the hooks for the fire table. These will be riveted to the fire-table and will allow the table to be hung from the round supports on the wooden frame. the holes will be drilled into the hooks at a later date and they will be riveted to the angle iron frame of the table.

The hooks were forged from 3/8 in square stock. The square shape was left on the hooks to provide more resting surface and therefore more stability. Hopefully they were forged close enough in shape to keep the table stable.
