I Forge Iron

My new brick sidedraft forge

Recommended Posts

Thanks. This is my first attempt at masonry work, and if I have my way I will never handle brick and mortar again. "Make one out of brick, can't be too hard" I said to myself, I had no idea what I was gettin in to. Almost done though, so I'll soon be back to working steel and enjoyin the results of all that frustrating filthy brickwork.

Done? Never say that! I just stuccoed the out side of mine, with a scratch coat and am pondering what color to put on the final coat. I may go with teracota or a buff. I am also thinking about making a mosaic over the hearth or just an abstract pattern. I did find a really nice 10X10 inc tile today with a Scandinavian winter scene on it. If I can find one for each season, I may even use those.
