I had my first blacksmithing session last week, and it was probably the most fun…
Sometimes it’s nice to get out from in front of the monitor and coding and make something in the garage.
One thing I really wanted was a headphone stand because I was tired of leaving my headphones on my desk only for the darned things to get in the way. But then it struck me; I am trying to learn a few blacksmithing techniques so why not just make something?!
Oh yeah, that’s right, my homemade forge broke and I haven’t fixed it yet.
But, wait a moment… I have a blow torch, an angle grinder, and some really rusty angle iron from when I tore down my old and knackered garage door. Surely I can do something with that, right?… Right?
Turns out that, yes. Yes, I can!
OK, not the snazziest thing in the world, but it fits my needs absolutely perfectly, has a nice ‘rustic’ look to it, and is ideal for my HyperX headset.
