New Straps and Pintles

I decided to make a new display for our ironwork out of rough cut boards when we go to craft shows.
Aways back I made some pintles and hadn't used them for anything.
The pintles needed some strap hinges to go with them.

I forge welded the pintles and the eye on the straps.
Here are some photos:










And this is how I'm using the hinges in our ironwork display at last weekends craft show:
