    those are definitely on the list. Just trying to find the time is tough. I foolishly promised to make someone a lamp hook for her birthday some time ago, now I have 3 days to make it. humbug... Thinking I'll use this twist as an aspect of it.

    A little bit of forging, over the course of several weeks. My schedule is almost clear enough to start on knives again, but just to be sure- I'll be on vacation in a few weeks, with the intentions of focusing on knives pretty good.

    Until then, I delivered to my co-worker a wall mount lamp hook for her birthday.

    First attempt at a bangle. My sister wanted one for her birthday, so I did a test piece. 20190521_155814.jpg 20190521_160028.jpg

    this afternoon's fun -- had a buddy help me bend the flat bars.
    angles were cut out of roll stamped 9/16" steel ballusters, then the ends flattened and bent in the forge.
    riveted together - I didn't want to clean up weld splatter.

    This started as a plowshare. I don’t have a pic of that.
