This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Metal Working.

For this BB, you will be making a crude forge!  It can run on propane, coal or, preferably, charcoal or a j tube.

Here is one way to do it:


Minimum requirements:
 - can heat steel or iron to "red hot"

To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - The supplies you're starting with
 - Partway through the build
 - The finished crude forge heating metal
 - Red hot piece of steel (larger than 1/4" diameter)
 
On my planet I'm considered quite beautiful. Thanks to the poetry in this tiny ad:
