Inside the shop


So where does all this metal stuff get created?

This photo shows a portion of my shop: Fossil Forge.

I use a couple of different forges (coal and gas) to work metal. I mostly use the gas forge, 'cause its quick and easy, but the sound and smell of a coal forge is hard to match.

The anvil I use weighs about 110 lbs. It's fastened to an old truck wheel, which makes it easy to move around the shop.

A basic plasma cutter helps cut out designs in the steel. I put it all together with a Mig welder and an assortment of other fasteners.

Most of my workspace is crowded with stuff and objects that might someday become part of a sculpture. Thanks for looking.
