Weekly open forge

Every Tuesday evening I hold an open forge night for those interested in blacksmithing and bladesmithing.    Usually there are 2 or 3 of us going between the coal forge and the two anvils.  Pounding on hot metal is lots of fun and you get lost in crafting an object and watching the fire.  The time just flies by and too soon it is time to shut down the forge.
