Blacksmithing a Garden Gate

Use a gas forge to create an attractive garden gate for your yard. This is an intermediate class so you need to have taken at least one of the beginning classes in either coal or gas forging.

The project starts with a pre-welded rectangle that you will use as your base for adding forged cattail leaves and stems, with optional dragonfly, bird, and fish shapes. Welding will be provided to attach the forged components together.

You will be using basic and intermediate forging skills of drawing out, tapering, forming and shaping with hammer, chisel, and dies.
