Horse and Shoes in Steel

Clydesdales in ¼" Steel Plate, Rusted and Weathered.

I traced a pattern for 1/4" steel from the same client-provided file I used in the Engraved Plywood "Big Jake" Horse and Shoes. I outsourced the cutting to Portland Waterjet, whose work was beautiful and crisp. Sadly I never took a photo of the pristine parts, and by the time I removed the pieces from the good ol' under-bench time-dilating corrosion pot, they already had a nice crusty patina.

This one didn't look quite old enough, so I put it back in for another 25-year cycle.
