My latest buddy forged from a single piece of 3/4” square stock! He seems to really like iced tea?

Details are so satisfying! I put hexagonal tapers on the back ends of these 5/16ths drifts for class at @thesteelyard ! They got smushed within a few heats, but I’m still glad I put’em there!

We made egg spoons in class, so of course we had to test them! And no, a Viking axe isn’t a good fork substitute. :/ #blacksmith#blacksmithing #bladesmith #axes #viking#cooking #handmade #eggs #maker#make #badass

Terrified Egg Spoon is scared of the forge! I made this egg spoon (fancy ladle to fry eggs in) and it was calling out to be a face, so I made it one!

Rawr! We’ve got silly dragons up the wazoo in the workshop! Lots more dragon experiments and dragon wing nuts to come!

Each new “Ready, Set, Smith!” class means lovely new students and lovely new bottle openers! 😀

Making Forge Friends is always a bittersweet class. I love the material and the teaching, but it means that another round of Ready, Set, Smith has to come to a close. :(.

When I’m on my A game I love making elaborate meals like this Sichuan hot pot for four! This week, though? I’m in a bit of a creative slump. I’ve been making mostly “Spaghetti-a-la-Things-at-the-Bottom-of-My-Fridge” and “Beef… with uh… sauce? It’s got, like, brown rice? It’s good…I think.” 😀 

We all go through bleh times, just do what you can and pat yourself on the back! Tomorrow I will go to the grocery. I’ll make Tide Pod soup, I’ve heard that’s good!
