Ever wonder where they find those interesting wedding reception name place folders?
Well, for the one hundred and twenty guest at a wedding next month… I made them!
Sounds easy doesn’t it.
I was asked if I could do the job and I thought “how hard can it be. Ya just bend some forks”.
Then I started thinking about it and decided they all needed to be perfectly balanced and matching in order to look good.
So I made a small tool. The answer to all things metalworking.
It has been said that a blacksmith will spend 5 hours making a tool which will save him 5 minuets of work. Well I am not that bad, but I did NEED the tool!
Just a small bender to make the curves identical each time.
Then a stand to hold it still…
Then a designated clamp to hold the fork flat on the bottom.
Etc etc etc.
But it was something new…. And that is what I like doing, new things.
Hopefully they are fun, and cool.
So what do you think of the fork place holders?
Leave me a comment below of just email me at
Oh, one more thing, if you need to set up place cards at your next function… I have a tool for that!
