Building a propane forge at home

| | | | | | | | | | |

I'm about to start a project building a propane metal forge. This is the latest in a flurry of activity brought on by tragedy. I recently lost a very good friend at work when he unexpectedly passed away. This left a coveted opening on day shift that I was able to move to. This change in working hours has had an unexpected effect on me after working night shift for 14 years: I have energy again. My wife just thinks I've gone crazy. Maybe it's because I build a spud gun last week, I dunno.

This is a new set of candle sticks that got finished today. The heart design separates to make individual sticks. The bases are sawtooth cut to make the set look as one when together. The candle cups were forged from 3/4" iron pipe.

I made this knife for my brother and delivered it on Christmas day! It's made from a "Black Master" horseshoe rasp my Farrier friend threw my way (note the vertical file lines running the length of the blade). The handle is American Oak with brass pins. It's the first full tang, wooden handle I've attempted and it still requires a sealent.


California Forging

| | | | | | | | | |

Hello everybody, I've been looking around here for a couple hours now and I'm pretty happy to find a site that brings so many talented metalsmiths together! I've just finished my service enlistment and have been forging my own knives and nick-nacks for about a year now. I would really like to work for a professional forge if there is work/help needed in the southern California area. Maybe you, or someone you know is in a situation to take on a hard worker and motivated learner? Thanks for reading, Happy New Year!
