Oh damn, I only just realized that bottle opener was a horse.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Ha, I ain't the greatest artist.

And Levi, the Hammer of Thor is beautiful, man. I might try to put a Rubik's twist on something soon.

I recently picked up Wayne Goddards book $50 Knife shop.  It's worth it.  Great stuff in there.

Pretty cool stuff guys. I've been thinking of trying my hand at forging/blacksmithing. This is some pretty good motivation!

 Cool thread, I've recently been messing around with this in my shop as well. First project was a tomahawk forged from a wrench

  I made the stand for my little propane forge, I will upload some photos. If anyone is thinking about getting into this hobby and wants or needs a stand for their forge I am more than willing to make these for anyone on DTT, just send me a message.

Very nice man. I almost went with propane, and still might someday.

So, I made a Gandalf bottle opener today.

I've dabbled enough to have gone through 3 years blacksmithing school and a 1,5 year international welder education, and been working ten years as a coded welder now. Still havent built up my own shop but just bought a house with plenty of land to build it on so.. soon i'll be swinging hammers again. First project will be casting a concrete floor plate, then i'll bring out the big old industrial welder and fabricate a steel frame. Will be quite a job.
