To make a boring thing interesting you could use metaphors. For a forger (weapons) you could do something like.
“'Eh get your arse hammering this metal!”
Wow! I finally get to make a sword. “Thanks Smith!”
"Jus’ do it before I git out of the outhouse!
I feel the metal spreading cold like an infection through my skin. Battered edges and hardened handles show the history of the nigh destroyed sworn.
The flames lick the blade like a beast, and dance frenzicly around the blade. The heat draws hotter and hotter, the cauldrom like a dragon, and I a warrior.
The sword flays and whips against the dragon, cutting the scales of the beast.
Heat sears up my arm, and I then realise I almost burnt the sword. Whoops.
The hammer crashes down again and again, battered edges turning into a sword fit for a soldier. But, sadly, I am not warrior.
I hammer again. Harder.
Such is the life of a lowly apprentice.
