I Forge Iron


Recommended Posts

I finally finished my second horseshoe sculpture, a unicorn as requested by my 7 year old horse crazy daughter. The horn is a farrier rasp, the piece around the eye is a section of sheet metal from a 45 gallon drum, the eyeball is the steel toe cap from an old warn out pair of my Blundstone  workboots.  The base Is from an old plow that I have since scrapped and the ears are cut from an old circular saw blade. I am happy with how it turned out, not sure yet where I will put it, am pretty much decided it's going outside unfinished and will just let it rust naturally.

I have never heard that saying, but it couldn't be further from the truth! The rasp was a pain to forge, our farrier buys quality rasps that seem to be quite high carbon steel. I am happy with how it turned out, all the forging was done on the step of the anvil.
