Timberline ironwork

In honor of the blacksmithing event we will be attending at
Timberline Lodge, I thought I'd show you some of the original ironwork
produced by O.B. Dawson and his crew in 1936.


Love the detail


Talk about massive andirons! Supposedly rails from a railroad were used for these.

I also found a photo and newspaper article regarding O.B. Dawson: click to enlarge

The andirons do look as though they could have been railroad tracks. Hope the trip is great.
