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!

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!

Just some ENORMOUS hinge barrels. I actually had to use the coal forges at Prospect Hill Forge (thank you, Carl!) to get the initial welds done. They just wouldn’t fit in my propane forge!

True wrought iron is precious, you work with what you can get! I spent the day with two strikers, working down some massive old nautical chains into useable stock. I’m tired… 😴 That’s my 900 gram forging hammer for size. 😀
