No Forge Maker Challenge 2018
COMPETITION IS CLOSED – CLICK HERE To CHECK OUT THE ENTRIES!
The Making Time Podcast and ennoLogic are proud to announce the No Forge Maker Challenge
For this Makers Challenge, the task is to make metal bend to your will – without a commercial forge.
You’re free to heat and manipulate the metal as you wish – and to incorporate as little or as much metal in your build as you choose – but you cannot use a commercial forge to work your metal.
Homemade charcoal forging, coffee can propane forges or just heating the metal in a fire is all acceptable, just no commercial forge.
And of course you must document your work.
EnnoLogic will be publishing all entries in the new Makers Gallery after the challenge is closed for judging, and winners will be highlighted on the Winners Gallery Page.
Complete rule for the No Forge Challenge 2018 are listed below:
Making Time Podcast No Forge Challenge 2018
Challengers are tasked to build something out of metal without the aid of a commercial forge. This means that part of your build must require the metal to be heated. This could include something as simple as heating a bar with a map gas torch then bending it to create drawer pulls, or crafting a custom knife from a raw bar of steel. You can build a makeshift charcoal forge, a coffee can propane forge, or just toss some metal into a fire and heat it enough to make it submit to your will.
The No Forge Challenge will take place over a 30-day period, (Through October 6th), and is open to anyone willing to take on the challenge. Challengers are required to document their project with photos or videos, and their entries must be submitted to the Making Time Website by 11:59PM October 6, 2018. Judging will take place over the next 15-days, and we will announce the winner live on YouTube on Saturday October 20th.
