Beautiful hand forged ironwork designed and made for you by Joe Babb

If you build a fire, it’s nice to have tools to manage it.  Whether you want a complete set of tools or just one, I’ll be happy to make them for you.  I don’t keep many in stock because folks are usually pretty specific about what they want for type of ending, or handle, or size, or decorative treatment.  Cost depends on overall design, number of tools, type of mounting if desired.  So contact me with your needs and I’ll be glad to give you a quote.

I’m showing several pictures here of different handles, and poker endings that I have made in the past and from which you can choose.  Also, I’m always open to new ideas so send me a sketch of what you have in mind if you don’t see it here.  Click on any of the images to see it a bit larger.

Poker Endings:


I have two basic size of shovels.  The one shown is the larger of the two.


I tie my own brooms using broom corn.  Nothing fancy.  They look like the ones shown in the two sets below.


I make a style of tong that is a bit different.  But I can make whatever style you would like.  Shown below is a pair of tongs with a companion poker.  I’ve begun doing the hinge joint for the tongs in a way that is strong but makes it easy to separate if there is ever a need to do so for repairs or modifications.  I find that most people have very personal likes and dislikes when it comes to tongs.  My mentor disliked them and preferred that people order what he called log forks.
