First forge meeting results.

Recommended Posts

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 sell at an event they'll be demonstrating at next weekend.

They look very nice!  I would suggest closing the loop on your rat tails though... they don't tangle or catch that way.  Just keep rolling the scroll till the circle is closed.

Looks great.  Just have to ask what is the thing on the side of the anvil about 1/2 way down?

Had to pull the pic up to see. It wasn't my anvil. But upon looking at the pic, it's a magnet. It has a bunch of metal bits and such stuck to it.
