Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!
The other day, I picked up a free forklift tine to make an anvil. It took numerous attempts, and forever to cut it, but the cutting is done.
I have already dabbled with mini propane forges, so I am well on my way to make a few knives and axe heads.
First, I want to make a set of tongs. It is among the first things you should make as a beginner smith. I made a pair a while back and they broke immediately upon use, so that doesn’t count. I will retry.
I named my Anvil “Ted”. A guy named Ted gave it to me.
Well, that is all for now. Have a beautiful day!

Good luck on your next attempt.
LOL, you have such unique posts! Good luck with Ted!
You would have made an incredible pioneer way back in the day!! Very impressive 👏🙌
And naming it Ted reminds me of that song “I wanna be a cowboy” lol
“My name is Ted, and one day I’ll be dead – yo yo yo”
Do you remember that song?
I am not familiar with the song, but I am appreciative of the compliment!
