Cornerstone Forge: Various other unusual items that I
make including Napkin Holders, Business Card/ Recipe
Holders, Clocks and Crosses. Available in many other designs
other than the ones shown. Click on image to enlarge.
My napkin holders are made to hold a generous amount of napkins and are high enough so that they
do not fold over at the top. They are 6" wide and 4.5" high at the center. They are 2 piece
construction riveted together to last a lifetime or two! Also available in Appleblossom and Aster
Business card holders that can also function as a recipe card
holder so that you can see it easily while cooking. Also
available in many other designs including Daisy, Aster,
Appleblossom, Morning Glory and Swirl.Click image to

that is riveted on the back for easy hanging. They are lightweight

Each round clock is 6" and hangable. They are lightweight and easily hung with a
small nail or screw. The clock mechanism takes a single AA battery (not
included). The desk clock is 4.5" x 4.5" (front face) not including the standing
back portion. Other designs are available. Click on image to enlarge.
Alumifact: One day I was curious to know how many
hammer strikes it took to make a particular piece. I was
making Bread trays at the time and decided to count how
many hammer/mallot strikes I do to make them. The total
includes all strikes by a hammer to impart the design on the
tray, mallet strikes to flatten it, hammer strikes to put the
edge on it and mallet strikes to shape it into a tray form.
The total was about 500!!!! I was somewhat shocked
myself. Suddenly my arm and shoulder were very sore!
