Slide of the Month Extra-Philmont Blacksmith Forge


April 2021

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


The weather is getting warmer. I'm itching to heat, beat, and repeat. The black smith shops around Philmont use coal fired forges like this one to teach blacksmithing so this is my ode to them.

After doing a bunch of slides with different levels, it was nice to try something free hand. So after looking at a couple of pictures of the forges at Philmont, I carved this out of a piece of  bass wood and painted it with hobby paints. I finished it off with a couple coats of poly.
