Need a kitchen update but would rather be blacksmithing?  You can do both by replacing your refrigerator door handles and dishwasher handle with custom forged work.  Why not?  Gary Cooper was recently approached by a client to add a custom look to a new lavish kitchen. 

The owners wanted their appliance handles to complement the new cabinet work they recently had installed.  With a few measurements, and

precise fitting, Gary was able to create these decorative handles.

The one inch round material needed some upsetting and fullering to complete the design and fit properly.  Also note the  dishwasher handle has a nice curve to accommodate an easy grasp.  

If you would like to learn more about this project, Gary will be happy to share a few tips to make your job easier.  Now, this kind of kitchen remodeling just might be in your plans!
