Former Student Makes His Own Dutch Oven Lid Lifter
Darin took the Beginners Class at Brown County Forge back in April. After the class was over he built his own forge out of an air tank and got to work.
After a very short period of tinkering, he decided to tackle a dutch oven lid lifter, a gift for his dad for Father’s Day.
We sent a couple emails back and forth to talk about tips and tricks for making the bends. Within a week, Darin had it sorted on his first try.
It’s a great project executed admirably. I’m sure his dad will enjoy it!
Darin fashioned a wooden handle using the woodworking talent he already had.
He also put an excellent reverse twist in the handle.
It’s extremely satisfying to see the work that my students create after they take a class. Darin’s work is no exception. He definitely has a knack for it.
