    Nice work. What do you use for a forge?

    Nice tripod and tools, Darren. All you need now is a pot hanger so your pots don't try to tilt on the hooks.

    BTW, love the face nailed floors. Is it an old home or did you do that for a rustic look?

    Was that addressed to me or to Darren? If to me, I have homebrew coal and gas forges. The coal forge is simply a steel plate table with an 8" square hole in the middle. In the hole is a slope-sided firepit 4" deep with a 2" air pipe in the bottom. I have a hand-cranked blower and can use an old hair dryer if I'm feeling lazy. The gas forge is made from a 20 pound propane tank with both ends cut out, lined with rigidized Kaowool and coated inside with ceramic refractory material. The burner is a "ribbon" or multi-port, naturally-aspirated burner. Here's a pic of the gas setup:

    Nice olfart, seeing that i can see a couple of designs in my head to do something similar with some bar stock instead of the horseshoe.
    Redman2006 older house but we kept face nailed boards here a lot longer than in the states, done a few on production house about 30 years back.
    Forges I run a gas venturi burner on LPG (Propane), small Coke forge that I'm looking to replace soon, have a new brake drum and body ready to go and i will swap over the fan from the other one, Also have an electric heat treat oven for my knives.
    Saying all of that i started with an old round picnic Grill with a hair dryer running into it would run charcoal if i got a chance to make it or direct burn timber chunks and would still get to non magnetic to Heat treat knives.
