I Built A Forge!

This is my first attempt at building a forge. I hope to learn blacksmithing and I assume having a forge is a necessity.

The design process is something I call “go to the hardware store and make something I think might work.” Luckily everything seemed to go well and it worked! I actually ended up accidentally melting the steel rod I was heating up so I guess that means my leaf-blower-bellow works.

I’m happy with how this turned out and am very excited to try my hand at blacksmithing when I get back home. I actually plan on making a YouTube videos about this forge’s design next month so keep your eyes out for that.

Here are some pictures of the forge at various stages of completion.
