There is an increasing interest and revival in the art of blacksmithing as a hobby and art, and both men and women are becoming blacksmiths. This is a simple, rewarding craft that men and women can do in their backyard or home workshop - even beginners can produce something useful and beautiful on their first try. This book shows you how - with some patience and a working knowledge of metals, basic tools, and techniques - blacksmithing can be easy to learn and a rewarding hobby. The author instructs readers in basic blacksmithing tools and how to set up shop as well as techniques that can be used to create your own original pieces. Through instructions and illustrations, readers will learn to make simple tools and useful items, such as nails, hinges, chains, tools, and handles as well as an interesting mix of artful projects, such as trellises, gates, wall ornaments, furniture, and sculptures.
