The Forge is Lit!

The Forge is Lit!
My friend Steve and I decided to test out the new forge this afternoon. Steve is a farrier and has been mentoring me on my journey as a blacksmith.

We had lots of flames at the moment of ignition (a few too many flames, actually):

Then, we decided to read the directions on how to light the forge the first time before trying it again (there's a lot my wife could say here, but thankfully she did not....):

After we changed some settings and removed some shipping material from inside of the forge, it worked like a charm:

Thanks, Steve!
