Video summary: Wind Sclupture at Battery Creek Forge

carpenter/woodworker falls in love with blacksmithing.

Living in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia I wanted to work from home. With a long time interest in blacksmithing I was lucky enough to get invited and attended a blacksmith demonstration. I watched as the smith expertly managed the coal fire and hammered the metal into shape on the anvil. The president of the association convinced me to join ( I'm not normally a club guy) then offered a free class at his blacksmith shop. I bought a portable forge and there I was hammering hot metal every chance I got. I started thinking about how my woodworking projects could be enhanced, made reproductions of colonial items and functional art of my design. Now I work in my one man shop with a forge I built and take the portable forge to demonstrate this historic craft at festivals and other events. I am now working in my shop full time. I simply love the blacksmithing!
