The ring that is the perimeter of the design calls for 2 slit and drifted holes (top and bottom) and two upset spots to drill and tenon together (sides). Planning my upsets prior to bending you have to put the upsets out evenly, include the mass for the upset, and also keep in mind where are your ends going to meet, obviously not in the center of one of the upsets; thus split the difference from the center and layout to the end. #blacksmith #handmade
