  2. Simple good looking present. If u allow ill steal this idea with few changes. Really beatifull. Viktor
  3. Good afternoon guys, at first i wish u merry and peaceful Christmas time. My last crafted piece is an pirate chest. Its necessary to say that theres no blacksmith work. Its just about cutting, grinding, assembling and welding pieces together. I would like to say that this chest moved my craft skills forward. It took me cca 12 hours till i finished it. Wood is spruce stained with palisander and steel parts are painted with "hammer-colour" (thats how we call it here "kladivková farba"). Hinges are made from bolt with two nuts, easy, cheap and functionally solution. i hope u will like it. It was my Christmas present for parents. They love it, who knows why, its looking good or just because their son made it. :-D Its up to you. For these days, your young craftsman Viktor ;) PS: Later ill upload more photos of details ;) now i have to go wish Merry Christmas to rest of my family.
  4. I am really glad that u like it, it means lot for me. Thanks guys and Merry Christmas ;)
  5. Good morning guys, its 7 a.m. there and i want to share my last project with you. Forged out off scrap metal and car spring. Its one of the Christmas presents that ive made this winter. I spent 7 hours till i finished it. Its 45 cm tall and 23 cm wide. Have a nice day ;)
  6. Hi Gergely ;) yes ill tested it on wine bottle, there was no problem with opening or screwing it into cork. I tried to make an thinner screw but it has broken in half. Later ill write u down exact size (i am in job now). PS to Gergely: irtam neked ;) olvasd el :)
  7. Thinking about christmas presents, any ideas?

  8. Hey guys, after a longer time am back with an new project. Its my first corkscrew that i´ve ever made. Before i start, its necessary to say that i am just an amateur fan blacksmith, but i need to hear critique from you guys. Even if it will be negative, i need to hear it. Critique can improve my self-access to do things better. (grammar like a boss :-D). I made it for an old guy living in my village that gave me 100 kg coal for free. Cockscrew is made from two different type of steel. Handle is forged from piece of steel that been used as reinforcement of truck bumper (Skoda Liaz). Screw is made from car spring (bmw 7). After i´ve finished the handle, i drilled it over and sticked the screw into. Welded from other side, clened up with angle grinder and again placed into a forge. For finishing, i used an polishing paste and drill with polishing extension. I hope you´ll like it. Viktor
