Default Horseshoe Nail Heart

A little late for valentines but here is a "how to" video of a nice little project for those that don't have a forge but do have a propane/map torch, some needlenose and some linemens pliers.
It'll make someone remember you!

Pretty darn impressive for what it is. Simple, yet makes one hell of a statement.

Well done. Pretty cool.

Neat!
I've never tried forging. This looks like a good project to start on.

Very proportional. One of the hardest parts to do. Nice work as usual.
