Made this a couple weeks ago for my mother's birthday, she'd been asking me about making one awhile, so it was time to make it.

The idea is basically a really large shepherds hook, with extra hooks on it.  This one has four hooks, two plain hooks, and one "Ramshorn hook" on the front.  It's made to go near a window, so has no hook on the back.

That's really nice. Hot riveted it looks like?

Made something similar, but for hanging plants in ceramic pots a while back. Lots of fun to do! (and they look good without a lot of pain in the butt finish polishing etc...).

Thanks ya'll,

Eric, you are correct, I drilled the holes, and precut the 1/4" rod for the rivets, then heated them in the forge, dropped em in the hole, and flattened both sides real quick. Took a couple tries on practice pieces to get everything coordinated, but it looks really nice, and holds them on there very tightly.
