For those of you that don’t know. I have been wanting to get into forging a bit.
I have had some metal fabrication experience in the past but an urge to forge has become a art I would like to learn.
I started a website a few months ago to share my woodworking and blacksmithing.
http://chiselandforge.com/
I also have a YouTube channel for the video blog side of it.

I love it here on lumberjocks but the need to tie my metalwork into my projects is getting bigger.
So if you care to catch up now and then on what I am doing come over to my site and see the latest.

Thanks guys.
Is there a ironjocks out there?

I’m with you Dave. I’m not so much into forging yet, but fabrication is pretty interesting.

I’ll be following.

Marty,
You want Dave making “old iron”, so you can add “authentic” replicas to your tool museum pieces!!!

Looking forward to seeing your new hobby evolve Dave. I did a bit as part of my engineering apprenticeship and loved it and I’m sure you will too.

I was watching this video by Artisan Media a few weeks ago about the making of a rams head poker. Check it out if you haven’t seen it already.

I Dave. I’ve been busy so I only took a brief look at your video. If I weren’t so old I wouldn’t mind learning some black smithing myself. I will be taking a closer look at it tomorrow, but since we celebrate on Christmas Eve here we are soon off to family to for our Christmas dinner and package opening. Take care and have a wonderful Christmas with your family.
