Hi, it's three pieces- the bow, the barrel and the wards. Just stuck together with super glue. The barrel is just done on the lathe, and the bow and wards are jigsaw/bandsaw/linisher/spokeshave/chisels/rasps. The best tip I can offer from the process is that when making the bow, it's best to completely finish the inside before even rough cutting the outside. That way you get a lot better workholding for half the job.
It is to be cast in bronze in a foundry at Haverhill, Suffolk. No plan for a lock ATM, but if one materialises I'll put it on here too. The client picked it up this morning and was over the moon!
