Long-time TM reader tmib_seattle posted this picture of a horse head clearly made on a forge. I love forge projects like this. In many ways, the forge is a great way to demonstrate the pyramid-like process by which complex items (and the tools used to craft them) are made. Each skill learned on the forge seems so simplistic in singular application as to border on useless, but they’re anything but. Instead, a creative person can combine even just a few basic forge techniques to make something really slick — like this horse head.
I really need to get off my ass and put together a basic gas forge so I can start the learning process. Be sure to check out tmib_seattle‘s other photos for lots (and lots) more forge work. And why not share your latest project with TM readers in our Flickr pool?
