  1. Heres what I made my wife... MAD
  2. very nice. great looking anvil
  3. very nice Chris!!
  4. Yeah the first one took me significantly longer than the rest of them did. Getting the angles right and the general shape is a lot easier when you have a working copy.
  5. This is really cool I love seeing all the different ideas!
  6. I like what Das said. I am by no means techy. I found this site pretty easy for a dumb hillbilly to navigate.
  7. Awesome work Donnie!
  8. I'm sure this is true lol. I just haven't gotten to it yet. I think its funny that it was all I was focused on though and here I am... knifeless.
  9. Great one Joe!! I have a few requests for them just haven't been able to get to them yet. People seem to really like them. great job
  10. Hahaha I see what you're saying. I hadn't thought about newer types of alloys coming out and the limited work done on them. I was thinking a little narrow minded I suppose with the fact that you heat metal up and hit it, weld it, heat treat it, temper it, etc. I am just amazed by this art. Every time I think im getting the hang of it I get severely humbled lol.
  11. In the same sense if there are a lot of new users that read the pinned posts then they won't ask the same questions as a lot of new folks do. That being said the website can still grow a ton and people can just read the previous posts. That's what I try to do unless I have a question that pertains to something kind of personalized that I cant find the answer to elsewhere. Also blacksmithing is a centuries old art. There isn't going to be a ton of "new things" come out. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say pretty much everything has been discovered with blacksmithing. With that being said this website should be for folks to talk about their experiences and help other people out. Just my 2 cents from a noob.
  12. I started thinking I wanted to make knives... Haven't made one yet. Turns out I just love making anything.
  13. Yeah thatd be a vise for looking at. Far to pretty to use. It's incredible work.
  14. Very nice!! I'm gonna put mine in the corner quietly now lol. I like them a lot. Did you weld the stems and grapes on? I don't have a welder.
  15. Very cool. great job
