This is my first try at one of these. I was give a bucket of horse shoes a few years ago and welded some together for coat hooks but this one said it wanted to be a door knocker…. so it is.. I just welded a rod across the opening for the pivot and added some brass knocking pieces and a cherry backer plate and handle.
It is finished with Danish oil and clear gloss lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

Unique idea Jim and looks great. I think I have a horse shoe around, if I find it I’m gonna make one of these. Very cool.

Great knocker Jim.

I had to laugh, looking at the thumbnail pic it looked like a toilet seat with a rodeo knob on front, hang on baby, gonna be a rough ride.

Congrats again, (2) 3’s in one day.
