CHAPTER VII SCROLLWORK TVHE scroll form is used extensively in decorarative ironwork, and there are many methods of shaping and working it. The one explained here is by hand with the use of simple tools. Fig. 64- Riveted Scrollwork The scroll may be formed from any size or kind of stock, the size and shape depending on its use and the position it is to occupy. Scrolls may be turned separately and then fastened in position with rivets, or they may be fastened with bands or collars heated and shrunk onto two or more members, binding them firmly. Another method is to weld and afterward form them into shape. p.108
