Plasma cutting the Hobbits Door
We wanted to share with you one of the most enjoyable projects we have worked on.
Patrick Steel were approached by a local designer and was asked if we would help create a replica Hobbit door from the Lord of the Rings movies. As expected, we happily agreed to this fantastic project.
The metal work on the door was plasma cut from 8mm mild steel, with the hinges fabricated by our neighbours, Metal X Fabrications.
It took a lot longer to draught the intricate design on our Lantek software than to physically plasma cut but the finished product was worth all the efforts.
In fact, the cutting time was only 5 minutes as the plasma cutter works at a speed of 3175mm per minute when cutting 8mm. Super-fast!!!!
Here is a picture of Bilbo's finished house.
We were privileged to be asked to be involved and it was a fantastic project to work on.
