Hi! We're looking for some information regarding buggy and sleigh patterns. My husband's grandfather was the last working blacksmith in Peshtigo, WI. We're currently cleaning out the family farm, getting it ready for sale. We have many, many antique wooden sleigh and buggy pattern pieces. Wondering if there's a market for these, as well as possible pricing & where to sell them. Pictures attached. Will appreciate your feedback. In addition we've got some tools. Thanks for your time
Had a conversation with Glenn that got me to thinking... Yes that can be a dangerous thing. Frosty and I have just about hijacked a thread by a new member, we are talking about horses and horse trainers. Any way, I thaught I'd start a thread for those horseshoing and farrier questions and comments. I'm not the only Farrier here, and many of them have more experience, or different specialties than I do. I hope they will chime in. Like any other time you get blacksmiths together your going to have more than one way to skinn that cat. I know that there are farrier spacific sights out there, but not a blacksmith eccentric descusion. Hope Glenn forgives me for opening this can of worms... Too start out let me ask you'll that do public demo's how you handle the inevitable question about blacksmiths shoeing horses?
Forged this knife out of a farriers rasp a few weeks ago and got it finished up. Knife has a full flat grind, hand rubbed satin finish. I left a few of the file and rasp marks in the blade to add some character. Blade is 10" OAL. Fitted with stabilized Honduran Rosewood handle scales that have been scupted to fit your hand better. Handles sanded by hand to 800 grit. SS pins and an aluminum lanyard tube. Did some filework on the spine of the tang for a little class. Sheath is a pouch style made from 7 oz leather. Hand sewn with some border tooling. Dyed medium brown. Turned out nice.
