  1. Well all I got to say is this........... It took me longer than I thought. LOL So here is how I built it. First I built the basic "frame" out of concrete blocks, then I "faced" the block with bricks ( just for looks). After that I built a steel "table" with a hole cut out for the fire pot, and then I laid brick on top of that, leaving a hole for the fire pot to set in. Then after building a 10X12 steel fire pot, it set right in the hole, and lastly I got some solid bricks to lay on the top run of bricks for an edge to keep the coal in. At the same time of doing all this, I also built a side draft forge hood that I built to sit on top of the forge. There isn't all to much that is special about it, except on the front I cut out a 14X14 hole for the smoke to go through. I know that is kinda big, but I built a door that slides up and down by using a lever, and by doing so I can control how strong the draft will be. I tested it out today by placing a piece of paper in the fire pot, and after a little adjustment on the hood door, the draft was SO strong it pull the paper right out of the pot and up the flue!!!!!!!! Now I know my description on how I built my forge was as clear as mud so I will show some photo's. I am sorry about all the links, but I couldn't get my photo's to upload on IFI. :( http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyblacksmith/6842337318/in/photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyblacksmith/6858548260/in/photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyblacksmith/6858534534/in/photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyblacksmith/7007301973/in/photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyblacksmith/7010058149/in/photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyblacksmith/7022496669/in/photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyblacksmith/6882036540/in/photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyblacksmith/7028139821/in/photostream
