Day 2 of Claude Moore Colonial Farm's July Market Fair: A Tutorial on Lantern Hooks

Day 2 of the July Market Fair at Claude Moore Colonial Farm was a day for big blacksmithing projects.  Of course, Jeff made some custom hooks for friends who needed to hang wind chimes, etc... He also made a 4 foot cooking tripod for a guest....and then got to work on two large hooks to hang lanterns for another friend.  They turned out wonderfully!   

Jeff and Vince worked together on the lantern hooks.  At times, it was a bit tricky to figure out how to work within the confines of the space and the materials/tools that we had on hand.  They did a great job, though.

We were located next to some Osage Island hogs, who didn't seem terribly impressed with the good forging going on!:

What a great day!
