This essential blacksmiths reference includes many projects contributed by leading blacksmiths from around the world, each featuring plenty of opportunity for variation. For centuries, blacksmiths were the craftsmen and artists that worked societys most important material-iron.
Blacksmiths were not only a fixture in their community, they helped shape that community through their particular method of making the hinges, hooks, brackets, and tools their neighbours used every day. Blacksmithing today is enjoying a resurgence. Our modern society has discovered that no amount of technical perfection replaces the feeling of picking up a hand-forged object, knowing that it was shaped by an individuals creativity and physical effort. Modern smiths can use the first section of The Everyday Blacksmith as a reference for shop basics: safety, equipment, and techniques. These basic techniques are illustrated through a series of projects. It also covers methods for finishing pieces. In the second section of the book, you'll find a step-by-step guide to a diverse range of essential blacksmith projects. Projects are structured by category and difficulty. The emphasis is on the accessibility of techniques, functionality of projects, and diversity of design.

The Everyday Blacksmith is sure to become every shops go-to reference.
