Found a 7" aluminum spike nail in my yard. Banged on it with a hammer, took a grinder and some sandpaper to it. Filed it a bit. Polished and...awesome. The photos don't do it justice. I'm gonna make a boatload of these.

Just finished this one today. Made from standard Ikea type furniture bolt. Maybe 3 hours to bang, grind and polish. Pretty neat, eh?
