Step 1: The Loop.
First of all I have to say that I´m not a Forge expert ,I just love to heat some Iron and give it some life.
The loop its one of the basics shapes that Masters forgers use in his Metalworks.
So Im going to show how to do it easily.Then How to use the Loop to made some forged furniture.
Start to heating in the forge the iron until gets Cherry Red, hammer the tip of the Iron and smooth a little.Find the better way to do these.there are some techniques , but certainly Im just a Rookie in these kind of Crafts.Personnally I dont like to use remplates to bend the Iron in heat.
