We have a barrel that used to hold chemicals in our back yard. We burn sticks and yard debris from the last storm in it. There's a hole starting to form in the bottom, and the hole happens to be where most of the heat goes. And it's big enough to put bars of metal in, so I put in the multitool I made at scout camp, and I finally finished it. It's now a spatula/crowbar/EPIC backscratcher/window smas- I mean spare set of keys. Since I discovered the hole 2 days ago I've been heating up metal and hammering it into new shapes. Sadly, I have no tongs, anvil, big hammer, or fire gloves. So I improvised where I could. For tongs I use a big wrench, for an anvil I use the concrete patio, I can't make a big hammer, so I used a normal one, and I'm going without fire gloves.

If you have ever worked with metal, discuss what you have made.
