They say you're not supposed to inject your coffee, so what better vessel to consume it from, than a hand made mug from a fellow maker of things @foxypots.pottery

Doing the work of our ancestors makes me want to do other things like they have done, like trade work for work. I forged this knife and steak flipper for a friend... That friend has a TIG welder and welding experience that I don't have. I have a sheet of 1/4 inch steel and want a blacksmiths guillotine tool........ See where I'm going with this 🤔

First one of these since November 2015. Probably the last one for another three years or so. Nothing but respect for bladesmiths, I'm just not interested in being one myself.

From coil spring to hexagonal slot punch. One of my long term goals is to forge my own hammer completely by hand, with tools I forged completely by hand. I don't reckon this would make a good hammer eye punch, but it's a practice step in the direction of forging one. The only power tool used was a wire brush on an angle grinder to finish off the forge scale. Otherwise it is 100% hammer, anvil, hot rasped and filed and hexed by eye.

One of the first videos I ever watched that I wanted to make what he was making was the bending fork by John Switzer at Black Bear Forge. Always wanted one, tried once and failed miserably. Tonight I found that same piece of steel and gave it another round. Very happy with my progression tonight!

More forge welding training with dad today. This one was a "drop tongs" weld. Didn't survive the cold bend test, but I didn't expect the first time to go perfect. Will need a lot more practice.
