• Forged Dragons and Wizards

    I’m trying to build up inventory for a medieval festival where I’ll be doing some forging demos. The dragons are coming out really cool and I’m really loving how the wizards are looking.

  • There Be Dragons in These Hills

    I used a mix of new and reclaimed steel to forge this dragon wall hook. The wood is reclaimed, and I used watercolor paints to make Water-based stain, which I used to blend the yellow into red.

  • Roots Run Deep at the Forge

    This shelf is made from all reclaimed wood and steel.

    The roots were all hot cut by hand. The cedar wood was rescued from a neighbor’s burn pile.

  • Check out the old hook

    It was a long day at the forge, but I got a few things done.

    The blacksmith knife is 5160 spring steel with a metallic gray paracord wrapped handle.

    The bbq set includes a spatula, toasting fork, and a steak flipper, made from railroad spikes.

    This wrench was found half buried on a farm. There was no way to save it for regular use, so it now has a new life as a very unique wall hook. The patina on this wrench hook makes it one of my favorite pieces. Hope you like it.

  • Fresh Off the Forge

    HOJ Forge is up and running in Gainesboro, Tennessee! I just got done forging this one up last night. Now for some grinding and the heat treat.
