Lesson 6: Blacksmithing Guide | How to Make A Corner Brace Part II
Alright so you just learned the beginning process on how to create a corner brace. Now you’re going to see this thing start to take shape. You’ll see as our expert Armondo gets the metal a nice bright yellow, he’s able to bend the metal over the anvil horn. This is going to make it so he can start to taper the split metal down and curve it at the same time. I know, it sound confusing, but you have to see it done, it’s a lot easier than you may think! See you’re still putting those lessons you learned earlier in the blacksmithing guide to good use. The anvil horn is a great tool for creating things like this. You’ll see Armondo bend the metal twice over the anvil horn and how he uses his kiln to reheat his metal to keep manipulating it. You know your friends will be impressed when you show them how to make a corner brace. Keep up with the series and continue onto part III!
