i think i found my next project – building a blacksmith forge.

i was reminded today when i watched a blacksmith forging steel that i’ve always wanted to learn to make some simple things by working metal. but i always thought the cost and complexity of building a forge was a deal breaker. turns out, it’s not that hard to build a forge. the basic brake drum forge design in this video really suits my style.

you should watch the video all the way to the end. i would love to hang out with this guy and learn how turn metal.

i ran the idea by odin and he’s excited to make a forge in the coming weeks and learn some basic metal bending.
