Some so-far unsuccessful attempts at bronze casting, in sand and cuttlefish bone
Vase, forged from steel tube
Some cloak pin clasps in a LARPer / re-enactor stylee. Two of these are steel, one is mithril (or titanium, to you mundanes). I've since done some more steel ones, this time darkening them with a chemical bluing.
More titanium smithing
The real piece is much lighter in colour than these quick photos
As a travelling chest for possible LARPing episodes, I refurbished an old and very tired joiner's chest. The chest was made from roughly nailed pine boards, which now had many splits to repair and a large section missing from the lid. The finish is black bitumen paint. As seating, the lid is now upholstered with tarred canvas.
The original chest had no handles, so I forged a couple of steel ones.
A slot-gnomon equinoctial sundial.
Get a Flaming Clue.
A very simple brazing hearth.
