Class Description: This is a one-day class to practice basic blacksmith skills and introduce tenon joinery. The project will be to forge 3 identical pieces, including slotting & drifting holes, and forging & sizing tenons to complete a basic trivet.
This class is good for nearly all skill levels. The simple design of this trivet allows for achievable joinery with moderate blacksmithing skills and the tools provided in the class. The design is easily adapted to challenge the experienced/advanced smith, too – a few options will be provided, or bring your sketches and ideas!
Tools and Equipment or other items participants are to bring to the class:
Favorite hammer and tongs for forging ½” square bar. Punches, drifts, and tenon-shaping tools will be available for use during the class. Stock will be provided.
Safety Equipment: the usual for forging with coal: safety glasses, hearing protection, clothing of natural fiber with no cuffs or fraying, and leather boots or shoes.
Lunch arrangements: BROL or fast food locations nearby
