These are some of the sequential photos and description of how I made two wrought iron Window Boxes from one old Window A/C unit window guard.

Step 1: Seperate the usable part

I used an angle grinder with a thin blade to grind through the welds and then a hammer to tap the old window guard into two halves.

Huh? Do you mean is this listed under technology or is this technology somehow under qualified to be demonstrated here?

Duhh. OK I see it now. The TECH category that is shown in the sub headings above in the orange horizontal category bar; right?
Really beautiful! Great reuse. :D

TY Jess. I thought it was rather creative for the "happy" old furniture dealer to figure that I could do this and then turn me loose on the project. I did have to make a heavy iron rod scroll bender to make those brackets. They are solid 1/2" square bar. No heat was used to bend anything you see here.

if this was made from a AC vent cover, its probably not made from wrought iron http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wrought_iron

OK ; UM you are reaching for a purists' use of words. All iron is wrought at some time. 1820s wrought iron is admittedly more worked on an anvil than modern iron work. But I go with: whether you bend a rod bought from an Iron supply dealer or you beat iron out of a lump of dirt ore and turn it into a rod, it is wrought either way.
