Forged compass joint detail. Needs a little more finish filing and a little heat and a tap just to close up the bottom of the joint.

Forged compass. I still need to tighten it up a bit. I’m debating whether to go back to the bench and do more filing.

The never ending project. Studio at night. The steel on the left will eventually line the space near the floor.

This is a video from the artestenico website.

I like this video quite a bit. Makes me want to go and light a fire.

This is another old post I’m reblogging. Being a blacksmith is pretty metal, but it doesn’t have to be ‘metal.’ You know?

Blacksmith Tom Joyce talks about Fibonacci numbers and aesthetics.

This is one of the best blacksmiths you’ve never heard of.

I got this gem in the mail today. Stahl- Und Metallarbeiten by Fritz Kühn. Unfortunately, it’s no longer in print. The earliest work, from 1939, is partly informed by traditional motifs as you would expect. The body of work from the 40s and 50s is decidedly modern. It was printed in 1959.

A work in progress from my friend and co-conspirator Matt Fitch. Finish up that grad school so we can forge more hammers.

I’m not sure where I’m going with this. I try to do free forging 30% of the time. No plan. Maybe I’ll chop a third off and make a candle holder. Sometimes it works out well, sometimes it goes in the bin.
