Toasting Forks

In this class we will make a long-handled two-tined fork suitable for cooking at the grille or over the campfire.

The techniques involved will be splitting, drawing out, curling & bending, and if there's time, twisting and draw-filing.

This fork design can also be modified slightly to serve as a most excellent marshmallow toasting fork (S'mores anyone?).

Gift Certificates for Toasting Forks are available.

Instructor: Carl West
$123
Class size is limited to 4 students (one per forge).

Prerequisite:
No previous smithing experience required, but if you've taken "A Taste..." that would be good. This project requires more patience and delicacy than strength of arm.

Please wear proper clothing for visiting or working in the forge: closed toe shoes (preferably leather, preferably high-topped. Sneakers are sufficient.), natural fiber clothing, long pants that cover the tops of the shoes. Click here for more safety information.
