Made the front of an electric cabinet today and then made my life difficult but making a riveted frame for the front!

My favorite #sundial #orrery is in a new spot with a new coat of finish, and she’s ready to tell you the time! Though, your phone is probably a tad more accurate… #steampunk #maker #make #blacksmith#blacksmithing #welder #machinist #gears#astronomy #metalwork #badass

For the past year and a half, this project has been with me. Two days ago, I finally installed it! Every step of this project involved an entirely new technique or concept for me, and I had the amazing help of my wife, assistant, neighbours and friends to get me through. There were many times when I thought that I couldn’t do it, but with their help and hard work, we got it done. Also? @a.falk and @nora.falk have amazing taste in sundial/orreries!

It’s been a heck of a week here at the forge! A bunch of projects came together and were sent out, and others have really started to come together!
