  1. I figured since I'm a newbie and I'm really excited about everything and posting up a storm I should make a thread for my stuff and stop spamming the "what did you make in the shop today?" thread. I've been trying really hard to get my propane forge up and running, but while the enthusiasm and the research are there the money just isn't (sorry Glenn, I promise I do intend to complete that order sometime). When we bought this house it had these two just truly awful sheds in the back yard. We refer to them as the Murder Sheds. They were both built on top of plywood stacks and in Wisconsin that's basically just a recipe for rot. I took down the plywood one this summer and am just now starting to pull the sheet metal off the other one. And I thought to myself "Hey, I could make a box out of some of this sheet metal. And the yard is basically made of dirt. What's stopping me?" So I've decided to make a JABOD forge until I can get the propane forge running. I banged out the box today, out of siding from the shed. It's not what I would call professional work, but it's probably good enough for me. As an added bonus, when I started pulling the front off the shed I realized I could probably leave it open-faced and use it as a space to forge in. Bonus shot of the current progress on the propane forge.
  2. Ok. So if anyone has seen my work, you'll know I like to make things from horseshoes! I have a lot of them and I'm having a hard time thinking of new things to do with them. I make hearts, S hooks and the occasional door handle. Forged some that got welded on to a beer keg hand truck to help move chicken tractors. Also have tried a couple of candle holders, but not very successful. I am coming up short on ideas. If you have ideas or pictures you wouldn't mind sharing, I'd love to read or see. Western motif would be especially helpful. Thanks in advance
  3. Horse shoe coat rack ... with two horse shoe hoof picks in front
  4. 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.
