Hello all. Just joined the forum and have lots of questions. The first is about design and layout of my forge, so I guess this is more of a masonry post. I purchased an 1840's farm house, and it came with a blacksmith shop. The only thing left of the forge is the top part of the chimney. I'm trying to stay as close as I can to period design. I know my rough dimensions, but what I need help with is how do I figure out how to lay everything out? For instance, how do I determine the angle of all my bricks that make curves? I'm trying to get a picture/drawing up loaded so people have a better idea of my design. Sorry for the vagueness, but like I said, I'm just starting out.
