Had a lovely time forging bottle openers with my students at @thesteelyard ! Also, asymmetrically wrapped Viking-style axes are fun! Can’t wait to finish this one. 😀
That feeling when you order a pizza with half pepperoni and half mushroom but this happens… Florian the Dragon was so excited for his mushroom, too. #firstworldproblems #blacksmith#blacksmithing #dragon #dragons #cute #tiny#handmade #maker #make
Look at the teeny weeny little hammer! Soooo cuuuuuuute! 😀 Today my students made punches and tiny hammers and it was so fun! 😀
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!
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!
