Blacksmithing a leaf

Craft & Design

Here’s an enjoyable vid of a blacksmith forging a leaf keychain. Edited down from a 2-hour process, this under 6min clip still manages to give me that pleasant feeling of ‘maker zen’ upon viewing.
[Thanks, Zach!]

I can’t help but be a bit reminded of the mother of all maker zen clips, Claude Paillard’s very awesome Fabrication d’une lampe triode.

Idea – Anyone have any suggestions for a MAKE kit or project build they’d like to see performed in a similar style? I may not have the seasoned skills seen in the above video examples, but I’m pretty handy with a soldering iron, snips, and needle-nose pliers. Leave a comment if anything comes to mind.
