Making metal loops in a coal forge
As I mentioned, I've been making these fabric painted heraldic panels, to mark the entry way to our Estrella camp this year. (estrellawar.org) Now, while I do great on the fiber side of things, I turned to my husband to figure out a way to display these panels. We decided that he'd make some rebar stakes with metal rings on them, one for either side of a panel, and I'd sew ties to the sides of the panels to attach to the rings.
Hmmm. We had some old rebar, but we didn't have any metal rings. We did however have a bunch of metal rod.
Then he cranked the blower to force air into the forge, to heat things up.
