    Manokai, what size horse shoes did you use for the wine rack?

    @ DSW - always use Size "1" to accomodate both Red n White wine bottles. White bottles tend to have a larger circumference. Note, our TSC usually carries Size "00", "0", and sometimes "1". Cost savings big time using a farrier vs TSC.

    We use a local farrier who has every conceivable steel/aluminum horseshoe under the sun.

    Thanks. It receives lots of compliments, mostly because of its asymmetry.

    The owl ended up having fork feet because I couldn't come up with anything else to use for feet and didn't want to screw around with nails. I think they'd be set off more if the pliers I'd used for the beak and ears had been newer and shinier.

    This was posted over on IFI by member Dogsoldat. Shame the pict is a bit dark and it's hard to see the 7 at the front.

    A few more items that I've done. I've also got a nice mirror that I'll have to get picts of tomorrow. It wasn't dry enough to photograph on Saturday.

    Horseshoe pumpkin makes a great door stop. It appears that your shoes are pretty thick looking at picture.
    I painted some orange with a beige stem and a couple others plain. The orange ones sold first. I saw another one posted here with green stem. What's your color ?

    I am a little late to the pumpkin party, but here is mine.
    Made this one for Patti and put the ribbon on for her.

    I like the "ribbon" idea. Those in pink for Breast Cancer would probably do well.

    I think your right. Until Patti got lymphoma, I thought pink was the only color. I think there is like 18 or so colors.
    Thanks for your comment.

    Re: New Horseshoe art Sticky

    Nice growing those pumpkins. I prefer the 8 shoe pumpkins over the 6 shoe ones too .
    I gotta make some more since I sold the last one. I think I'll make a four sided one with a plate on top for a Halloween pumpkin. Turkey might be another one to do.

    I was running short on shoes and one customer suggested a six shoe one but i told her she would like it...not as full. She later agreed.
    Like to see that turkey when you get it made.

    Re: New Horseshoe art Sticky

    So I'm at the feed store and I'm looking at an eagle that's been sitting out. I see the price tag on it of $200 and my first thoughts are this thread and all the people fabricating goodies from horse shoes and selling them. I happened to have my camera on me. I took as many photos of it from different angles as I could for y'all hoping maybe one of you could create your own version of the eagle and sell it.

    One thing though.... I asked the gal if he ever sold any of his eagles. She said they were literally flying off her shelves at $125 and that as fast as he would make one... it would be gone but that he hadn't sold an eagle since his wife upped the price to $200.

    Re: New Horseshoe art Sticky

    Rough guess is that there's at least 20-25 shoes in that eagle. Assuming $3 each on shoes, He's probably not making much at $125

    WOW !! It's nice, however , I would avoid the horizontal piece for the wings. Just using shoes may have a cleaner look.

    Thanks for sharing !
