In this class students will forge weld broad surfaces to construct an axe head. Students will be tasked with welding two types of steels together, temperature control, and how to prep metal before welding to insure nice clean and solid welds occur. Planning and preparation are key factors utilized in creating a functional piece. With that said, the head of the axe will have to fit a standard handle thus drifting punches will be utilized to help size the pieces accordingly.
After completing the forging, students will then proceed to refine and sharpen their axe by, grinding, and sanding as needed.
There will be no refunds within 14 days of the event.
