First Class

I had my first blacksmithing class last night.  I think I did pretty good.  We started off by making a few nails (harder than you would think) then did some bending.  I designed and made this hook for hanging plants.

It’s about a foot long. 

Tonight I’m going to make a long handled weenie/marshmallow roasting fork (WooHoo!). 

Hey, wait till you see it.  It’s gonna be fancy!

    It looks a lot like an “F” hole.

    Blacksmithing is an excellent art. right up there with glass blowing.

    Looks like a pretty good start.
