Follow along in this video as Mike from The Geek Pub makes a home made mini forge (fire brick forge). This project is really simple, and this little forge will allow you to heat metal for all kinds projects like crafting jewelry, knife making, or even small scale blacksmithing projects.
This project requires a firebrick, which might not be readily available in your area. You can usually get them at an Ace Hardware or a BBQ store (that sells fire pits). You get one from Amazon.com for about $5 with free shipping.
The main source of heat in this project is a small propane torch. Be sure to use it in a well ventilated area.
