  1. This may have been posted some time back, but I thought it might interest those of you with a hook fetish! John Switzer, of Black Bear Forge, recently provided this link to hook work done by Matt Jenkins...has some 366 variations of hooks. I love hooks and really enjoyed perusing through the styles, hope you will too. https://www.flickr.com/photos/cloverdaleforge/sets/72157678651367780/
  2. These are just a bunch of hooks, from scraps, and repurposed steel......ect. Usually I come up with these projects while I am demoing, at fairs, event, and the such. I did like the reversed Penny end..... i think its a nice way to finish off a hook.....the shepherds hook has been pretty played out i think.
  3. hello! I'm new to the forums and relatively new to blacksmithing. So far I've managed to avoid making a sword, and instead I've been pounding out lots of coat hooks, tools, more tools, tools needed to make the tools, and tools to make making the tools i want to make more quick and easy. I swear, beginners budget blacksmiting is just making tools! the picture below is of my latest set of hooks, (this would be the 4th set I've made) and I think it shows. I hope you like it.
  4. I made these for my Associate Pastor and Assistant Pastor at church to say thank you for their many many years of service.
  5. Words mean something, they can also be interesting in how we use them. I am calling this a reverse S hook with swan head tips. Please provide pics and names as this post leads you. Hate to say it but this may be my first pic post with the new format. Hope it doesn't suck too bad. And the swan head tips are not so evident... maybe.. We'll see how it works. My intent is not to put tradition on it's head. But rather to unleash folks art in the form of a pic and allow them to express their personal descriptions of that art. My art is obviously simple and easy. Well I have
  6. These camp oven lid lifters sell really well. We have lots of southern tourists in Winnebagos and campervans coming by my forge lately and I can't keep up the demand for these. Just a 300mm length of 12mm square bar with a long horn bull forged on top. The horns make good finger grips for lifting the lids of camp ovens (Dutch ovens in the US I think).
  7. I had never heard of a trammel hook until recently. Decided to try one today during demos. (I don't usually do untried things at demos, but these seemed easy enough). Found a piece of 1/4 X 3/4 flat off an old buggy and set to punching the holes. All went well till I got to drawing out the end for the top hook. A coupe of hits and I realised it was wrought iron. (Should have known as it came off a 100 year old buggy frame). It started to split so I cut the rough end off and heated it to sparking before making a broad hook. I would have liked to make the hook more decorative with a return scrol

  9. The client came with a photograph and he said that he wanted "hooks like these but not like them". He let me decide. His were of victorian/chinese/contemporary inspiration. Here is what I came up with. He was happy. The board seems cramped but it was to be 14 inches at the most. Material : flat bar 1/4" x 1/2". And they are with a twist ...

    the first leaves I ever made.
  11. I went to my first ever blacksmith group forge meeting. Met some great people, learned a lot and made the following items (pictures below): 2 nails 2 matching(sorta, they're about an 1/8" off in length :( ) brass brushed wall nail hook leaf tipped wall nail hook leaf tipped hanging hook (fits a pot rack we have in our kitchen) Both leaves brushed with brass wire brush. All hooks were rubbed warm with beeswax. I had so much fun and learned so much. If I hadn't been hooked before... making these hooks have guarranteed it. I left all but the end hanging leaf hook with them for them to

  13. I've finally got the verbal "go ahead" from my parents to start planning the long needed remodel of my bathroom. To cut to the point, i was thinking about making most of the hardware myself (towel rack, toilet paper holder, shelf/rack, *MAYBE* light switch covers, ect.) So what i need to know.... 1. Does anybody have experience with this type of stuff? I know many out there do, but is there anything out of the ordinary i should know? 2. What can i seal the stuff with that will be safe for bath towels & such? Will beeswax rub off over time? The pictures were found via google, and are
  14. I'd been meaning to make something like this for a while, as a way to hang my coat in the office. When my office moved, the new cubicles were profoundly lacking in any sort of accoutrements to get stuff off the desk. I think I heard the term "clean design" mentioned. Anyway, made a paperclip template to get the opening sized right and hang my headset, radio and rubber band stack on these. Contractor freak outs over scratches on the painted black surfaces warrented the leather strips under my ironwork.
