Forged Steel Sun and Moon Brackets

 I made these two brackets for my friends tiny house.  He wanted them to support the ridge beam of the house.  We decided to make two entirely different brackets for each side.

One is the sun, it is 16" long on each arm of the bracket,

and the other is a moon and it is 24" on each arm of the bracket.

They are made from 1 1/2" Wide x 3/8" Thick flat stock steel.  The sun and moon are 1/2" square stock.
