Just getting started trying some blacksmithing, just getting some of the needed tools. Started with a cheap anvil and mounted that to a stump the other day, looking at how to make a home forge at the moment. So many ways to make a forge it’s a little confusing. I’m with limited funds so this is a small budget start up, I’m looking forward to actually trying to make my own knife. Any advice is appreciated! This is a great thread!

it's great to see what other people do in threads like this, my other interests are dogs and making things with metal
here is a dragon that I am nearing finishing which has an eight foot wingspan and is made of scrap mild steel

I also make a lot of decorative items to donate to animal charities for them to auction and raffle to raise money,
these particular items are made in stainless steel which is my preferred material as it doesn't need painting but I also do them in mild steel, the pictures on them enable people to put their own pictures in if they choose to

I also paint and make one off hand made motorcycle 'body parts', some have been seen on my Vmax in past pictures but here is a grab rail and radiator cover that I made for my MT-03 660 earlier this year

Yes on things that go bang. I spend most my time in the woods hunting or preparing to hunt. The buck pictured is this years October archery kill. I have 35 acres of hunting land with a camping trailer and garage about a half hour from my house.

James t, if you had to pick just one of yours to take with you on a deserted island, which would you take?

... I also have a 1967 Buick GS, I'm also into vintage audio
One of my biggest regrets was passing up a deal on a 1972 GS Stage 1. I was working as a Millwright for Timken Steel and my co-worker built tractors for tractor pulls. He had the car sitting on blocks for 10 years in a barn. This was in 1981. Sea green, 455 CI, 4-barrel, 4 speed. All for 1500 bucks and he offered to toss in a free paint job. His kid was turning 16 and the guy did not want him to kill himself driving the car. I had just bought a Kawasaki LTD 1000 off the showroom floor, so I had payments. Kick my self constantly for not just getting it.
