I Forge Iron

My first forge


Recommended Posts

Yeah I created my first forge maybe about 5 mins ago... well without the stand just yet. I'm thinking I'm just gonna dig a pit and sustain the fire pot with cyderblocks until I can find a suitable base for it all. Aside from not filling everything with clay and dirt is there any advice? Just let me know and thanks!

It was the angle at which I took the pic, but everything is level as far as I could tell. I'll see what's going on when I fire it up the first time. I know better than to use cement b/c I asked that question a while back and got resounding no's to the idea :-p but all is good. I'll use the clay to cover the holes up then just refill it with ash and stuff. Unfortunately there's a drought in my area that has a no open flame policy or you could face 25k in fines and a year in jail, not the kind of bars I want to play with... but soon enough! ;)
