Chuck has this great picture of a set of small ornaments a friend of his made with a forge and 3 lb. hammer. Reader Whiteforge posted this little key chain lying across a similar hammer that, I’m guessing, came to life in much the same way.

It’s always amazing to me that such small, rather delicate-looking objects can be made with brute force and three pounds of steel hitting it repeatedly. I would most likely lose patience and make an ashtray out of everything, like I did when I was a kid and had to work with clay.

    Actually, that’s an earring, and the hammer is attached to it. Very bold statement.

    Put two groves in it, it’s an ashtray. Try to make a shoeshine box, screwed up. Turned it into an ashtray. Why’s the ashtray got shoe polish? someone asks? Different kinds, you know.
