    I've learned assumptions are often false.

    Forged a new handled punch today from 4"X1" round h13 and finished my brothers buoy knife. 11 1/4" x2" blade made from spring steel. Hickory handle with copper pins and a strip at the Guard. He wanted it rough. i like the drop point. Feels great in the hand. Indexes well and hacked threw a 3 1/2" apple tree branch like it was green maple.

    Had my first successful forge weld yesterday. Using some med-high Carbon stock. After the first initial taps and the second heat I heard this loud snap sound and it was stuck! Took two more heats to clean it up then tested it in the vice. Then I folded a file and my first weld stuck good and I again heard this loud slap/snap sound. Then I tried to fold it and weld again and I think I burnt it cause it broke in peaces. I could see that my second weld didn't take but the first one was good. What's up with this sound I'm hearing when the weld sticks???
  8. I use those blocks often at work. Making a round is not easy and to get over 2' you will have to cut a lot! Square is your best bet. Knock the lip off and stack them straight up using retaining wall adhesive. Allowing a step back or bat will make it a pain to work at and kill your back
  9. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    Thanks daswulf Hopefully Thursday I can back in the shop and work. Spoon I made yesterday was 4 3/8" X 1 3-4". Did a bb'q fork today but I forgot to take a pic. Turned out good.

    @Daswulf would you be willing to share your spoon dies? As I was working the spoon over my fuller I was thinking it would be nice to have a top and bottom tool for spoons

    Guess this is kinda my second spoon. I did make a ladle last March I think. I love it and use it often at the forge

    Thanks for the tips. It's a little large for eating with. More of a serving spoon. I was afraid to go too thin. I dished on the stump then smoothed out on my fat bottom fuller. Was a fun project. I'll do some more smaller ones

    Made my first spoon today. Started with 1" rebar about 6" long also working on some camp sets. Tripod and single pole.
