Easy Blacksmiths Forge

Intro: Easy Blacksmiths Forge

This a forge I made from things I had around the yard

Step 1:

It is supported on a few 5 gal buckets

Step 2: Body/hull

I made the body from a turkey pan, a big pan basically

Step 3:

I cut a. Hole in the center of the pan for the air supply/bellows. I put a pipe flange and pipe in through the bottom of the pan. I use a hair dryer to supply more air to the fire

Step 4:

I filled in the pan about half full with clay and left a bowl shape around the pipe

Step 5:

I Cut a slot in the side for longer pieces of metal , add a grate on top of the hole to stop your fuel from falling in

Step 6:

Smooth the clay and let it dry then light your first fire in the center to cure it completely

Step 7:

I use hardwood lump charcoal to fuel my forge

    Will the spot for the air intake blow the ashes and cinders around?

    Only if there is no fuel(wood, charcoal, coal, etc.) on it and you're obviously not going to be burning ash
