A human-sized hamster wheel that powers a forge? This crazy idea was born out of a conversation between the owners of two custom design-build shops; Cloverdale Forge, who utilizes traditional blacksmithing techniques to hand forge iron and steel and Wood Anchor, a company dedicated to giving new life to locally harvested trees and reclaimed wood. When makers connect the wildest ideas become brilliant realities. Come run the distance and ‘Run for Your Lite.’ Your human power will be pumping up the bellows of the blacksmith forges so they can make the anvil ring.



Cloverdale Forge and Wood Anchor

Cloverdale Forge focuses on preserving the craft of blacksmithing while designing to fit modern-day needs. Home to two generations of blacksmiths, Cloverdale Forge, appreciates and strives to produce the best-forged products made with hands, hammer, and anvil.

Wood Anchor is a custom fabrication shop/design-build studio specializing in upscale hand built wood furniture, wood furnishings, and wood art for residential/commercial/architectural & design applications.
