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

For this BB, you will be making a shovel!  It can be a RMH shovel, a spade for the garden, a snow shovel, a grain shovel, etc.

Here is one way to do it:


Minimum requirements:
  - The shovel head needs to be forged from one blank
  - It can have a wood handle (that's a different BB though)
  - It has to be nicely made and look like you kind of know what you're doing

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 shovel
 
They worship nothing. They say it's because nothing is worth fighting for. Like this tiny ad:
