I Forge Iron

Hi from Northern California!

Recommended Posts


I am a new blacksmith/metal worker. I started by taking some classes at the Crucible in Oakland, CA, one of which was a forge building class. I have been at it for about 2 years, and I just completed my first paid job: 10 trellis brackets I designed and forged for a contractor friend of mine.

I am here for tips on everything from shop/tools to artistry.

Welcome aboard Ellen, glad to have you.

If you've been doing this for two years already, you hardly count as a newby so we'll expect some ideas, tips and such from you too. ;)

And pictures, we LOVE pictures, the more the better. Starting out with your recently completed commission would be perfect.
