The top of the chandelier needed a crossbar with a hook. We wanted to accomplish nice and tight details and not fabricate all the pieces together. On the cross bar I forged a tenon, drilled the hole through the square headed clavos, and plug welded it to the tenon. Leaves nice and tidy joint. The tenon is 5/8" and not enough weight to warrant any kind of shearing. #blacksmith #handmade
