  1. Funniest thing I've read all day! You're awesome Frosty! Ribbits...I love it!
  2. I agree with Frosty, i'd like to tell people I knew you "When..." And if that hot cut is still available, i'll buy it from you. Do you have a touchmark? I want to prove to people it really was one of yours!
  3. You're work is awesome! I had no idea you were so young, you far surpass my "skills"! Keep up the good work, I can't imagine how great you'll be when your my age! I like the rain gauges, where do you find the glass? That seems like a project I could handle!
  4. These are very nice! When doing the fork, or the heart, are you flattening the end, then splitting it? (I think I'd need a hacksaw, I don't think I could hot cut something that thin!)
  5. These are great! Ausfire, the cupped shaped berries of the gum leaves looked like candle cups to me at first, (Having never seen a gum berry!) That gave me the idea that you could easily add a candle cup to make a neat centerpiece...
  6. This video was made by John Bennett, an awesome smith who has a few great videos on youtube (I hope he doesn't mind my sharing the link), and I think it has what you're looking for. I loved this method, and it can also be used on bottle openers, key chains, or anything else you can think up! (Post pictures, we love sharing and "borrowing" ideas!)
  7. On a different note, where the piece meets the desk could cause scratches on the surface of the shelf. I would suggest a pad of some sort, maybe a small piece of that rubber cupboard mesh used to protect plates, cut to size and stuck on the hook. You'd want it grip well but not be noticeable. (It would even make the hook more secure) Just a thought...
  8. I think the unicorn horns look great, not machine perfect, but a bit askew, as a horn would naturally grow. I also think they'd be awesome self defense weapons for the ladies!
  9. Aus, I've seen the rams head tutorials where they cut down the sides of material towards the face, and lift up and curl to make the horns, but it doesn't look like you'd have enough material for that, did you split the end and fold it over for the head? It looks awesome.
  10. I had that idea last year! I was going to try using black pipe to make them, but I forgot all about it! Thanks for reminding me. I have a habit of putting great forging ideas in a book I keep, and then forgetting all about them!
  11. One more reason I need a power hammer!
  12. Wow, that's some serious tapering! I Like it! You could also make a bottle opener using the wrench end if you crush it down a bit, then it would be all purpose! (There were some done like that in the bottle opener thread!)
