I am new to blacksmithing and ran across this site in my endeavors to design a hood for my forge. I saw where others had posted and got a lot of feedback and help from other members. Sounded like something I would like to participate in. I have only been smithing for a little over a month so my skills are still very rudimentary, but I am anxious to improve them. I promise to attempt to keep my stupid questions to a minimum, but do ask for some patience when I find myself compelled to ask them anyway.
