A Wrought Frying Pan
Pancakes, Scrambles, Bacon...

There's a satisfaction in sharing a meal you made.
And an even greater satisfaction in sharing a meal you made in a pan you made.
In this class you'll make a ~10" frying pan starting with a disc of 10ga mild steel and a length of flat-stock.
You'll slot-punch the end to make a ring on the handle, taper to improve the balance (and elegance) of the pan, you'll dish and raise the sheet steel to to form the "bowl" of the pan, and rivet the two together making a solid whole.
This is a chance to make a pan that works well over a campfire where conventional fry-pan handles are way too short.
These same basic techniques can be used in the making of ladles, egg spoons, and XXXsomethingXXXelseXXX.

Yes, really, we're still asking for it in 2024.
It's still out there, and no fun at all.

This is an intermediate class.
Students should be fairly fluent with punching and drawing out bar-stock.
Experience forging sheet would be marvelous but isn't expected.

Please wear proper clothing for visiting or working in the forge:
closed toe shoes (preferably leather, preferably high-topped. Sneakers are sufficient, sandals, crocs, pumps, mules... are not), natural fiber clothing, long pants that cover the tops of the shoes.
