First go to your local public library and ILL "The Complete Modern Blacksmith" by Weyger. In it he shows how he made a forge from a paint can and a chunk of pipe and used charcoal from a fireplace for fuel and a chunk of metal for an anvil. Using this forge he made a set of engraving chisels for doing woodcuts.

I've forged in a hole in the ground before.

You have a lot more available to youeself than you suspect!

Second find the local ABANA Affiliate and start attending meetings

You are on your way!
