When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.
Where: Adirondack Folk School, 51 Main Street, Lake Luzerne, NY 12846
Cost: $75 + $10 for materials.

Fire Pot Tongs are a traditional Chinese tool used to manipulate hot coals for cooking purposes but you will find dozens of other uses for these simple tongs both at the forge and in the home. Whether for the barbecue, wood stove, kitchen, these will become one of your favorite tools. This project will introduce you to basic techniques such as drawing out and riveting as well as making a simple box joint. In addition, two "must-have" blacksmithing tools will be made - a slitting chisel (where you will learn basic heat-treating techniques) and centerline scribe, both not only necessary for making the hot pot tongs, but many other blacksmithing projects as well.
