I Forge Iron

Solid fuel forge from bricks

Can you dig a hole in the dirt on your property? That is the easiest. Say about 4 inches deep and a foot across, allow a couple feet of space for fuel and materials, use a piece of 1 inch pipe for the tue in a side blast arrangement. You can bury the pipe in the dirt you took out of the hole even.

Is there a reason you want brick? A built out masonry project is permanent, and as a newcomer to blacksmithing it may not be your best use of time while you learn...you may change your mind about this.

The answer depends on how many bricks you have and your intended usage and/or goal. If you have enough bricks then perhaps a brick table with a firepot in front of a side draft chimney is very nice. So the questions include:
- how many bricks
- inside or outside
- how much space do you wish to allocated for the forge
- do you plan on a chimney
- what type of stuff do you plan on making
- how permanent do you wish to make the forge
- do you have or will you plan on installing a foundation under the forge
- do you plan on making the whole forge from firebrick or just the tuyer
