# I worked on some of my Settlers of Catan pieces tonight

These 7 are the first of 198 hand forged pieces I am making. Odds are, these will be tossed out due to poor craftmenship. I am hoping I will be much better at making these when I am done.﻿

5. Wait, I missed 4 pieces that need to be forged and 2 that need to be turned on a lathe (or forged). These missed ones are hard pieces to make as well. Some are pretty complex.

17. Todd, I've seen that before. It appears to be nice for the tiles, but what about the cards blowing away?
