People often throw metal objects into the pile. This lovely old Brace ( no bit) was one and I wanted to make a piece that would allow its beautiful shape and most of its design to be appreciated. I also love the word boring .. which I sometimes am and sometimes do. Anyway the idea of the character on the top sprang to mind and once the rust was removed from the brace it looked lovely. Not quite so needed in these days of battery drills but still a lovely thing in itself.
