Hello I am a retired firefighter and now hobby farmer and piano student. I want to build my first forge and take up metal work as a hobby.

Welcome aboard Tasha, glad to have you. If you'll put your general location in the header you might be surprised how many Iforge members live within visiting distance. 

I think you're going to fit right in here farmer, pianist in training and want to be blacksmith. Lots of hobbies a good sign if ever I saw one.

There are a couple things to think about before you get too carried away. Is there a local blacksmith organization you can meet blacksmiths, maybe take classes network with folk for tools, equipment, etc? Every hour you spend with an experienced blacksmith will save you many hours, days or more even of trying to figure things out yourself. 

Do you have an idea of what you'd like to make? 

What kinds of forge fuel do you have available? 

And so on, lots to talk about don't you know.

Frosty The Lucky.
