I Forge Iron

Got my best buddy....

Recommended Posts

out to do a little forging.


Best friend from college, best men at each others weddings,  now lives 600 miles away, but his son started college near me, and finally had my friend over at my shop for an hour or so while his wife and son were stocking up the dorm room.


Fired up the gas forge and showed him how to make a nails out of 1/4 inch bar stock.


We have a long history together of 2x4 dorm furniture and various remodeling projects, he makes archery bows and turns wooden pens on a lathe, but no metalworking experience.


Great fun to show the craft to my oldest friend.


Now to get his strapping, and now local, son trained into a striker!
