Here is a link to another thread where a fellow Lumberjock asked a similar question.

Maybe it will help you also.

My son is very interested in blacksmithing and we went to an exabition at a local art gallery. Met several local guys who are doing it as a hobby and a couple guys doing it as a living. They where all willing to give tips and a couple invited us to visit there shops any time.

Still haven’t built a forge. Please post a pic of yours.
