How long does it normally take you guys to complete a project? I always thought this would be real fun but don't know if I have the time.

I agree with Denali.  My time is very limited but I find time. 30 min here hour there. Very stress releaving

Finally got a moment to play with the new "anvil" after getting back from bear camp. I love it. Didn't get much time but I got a steak flipper started

Well after trials and many errors I have finished my 7th set of tongs.  They hold very well and feel good in the hand tho I did make some mistakes. Got my V a little to one side and that caused plenty of issues getting them to line up so I ended up hammering them flat and trying to form them around 1/2" round.   The jaws don't look pretty but they do hold very well.  I learned a lot on these and think my next set will be much much better. I like this style. Slitting is much faster than drawing out! This started as 1"X5/16" flat bar.  I saw this demo on wcb"s YouTube Chanel
