Announcement   Blacksmithing inspires me because it gives me the freedom to express and challenge myself. In my Central Oregon blacksmith shop, Deschutes Iron Forge, I do traditional blacksmithing. I enjoy transforming a plain bar of iron into different forms, creating a forged piece of fine art. I heat the metal in a forge, then draw out each piece with a hammer focusing on the details to make my products a unique quality piece. I enjoy creating hammered iron because it gives amazing light lines that show off the hand forged look. Deschutes Iron Forge welcomes custom orders!

Just what we were looking for in our new home. We had one similar in our old home and loved it. It took me a while to find you and this perfect toilet paper holder. Was all that I expected and more.

About

Enjoying Life as a Traditional Blacksmith

My early 1900’s, 9’ tall, 4,600 lb old Beaudry trip hammer and I spend many long hours together. Do I need to say this is my favorite tool as a blacksmith? My passion is traditional blacksmithing because I enjoy transforming a plain bar of iron into different forms creating a forged piece of fine art. Hammered iron reveals amazing light lines that show off the hand forged look even in something as simple as a forged handrail. Blacksmithing inspires me because it gives me the freedom to express and challenge myself. I take my time to focus on the details of each piece. When people see my work, I’d like them to appreciate the quality of the craftsmanship. What can Old Beaudry and myself create for you?

Over 20 years ago, I began a career in custom fabrication. A few years later I had a unique opportunity to work under a master blacksmith for 9 years forging in the traditional style. Since then, I've been creating all kinds of custom ironwork in my blacksmith shop in Redmond, Oregon. I hope you enjoy looking at my ironwork.

Shipping
We do our best to package items securely, and remember...it's solid iron and not easily damaged in shipping. However, insurance is optional and no refunds are given on uninsured, lost or damaged items in transit. All items are sent with delivery confirmation with USPS. Please let us know if you would like insurance so we can bill you for it. We do not refund if your address in not correct with Etsy.

Currently, we ship some items to Canada. If purchasing more than one item to Canada, please convo so I can create a custom order for you.

We use Priority Mail for small items with USPS. Combined shipping will result in a discount for you! We love to save money on shipping and we're sure you do too. Towel bars and sets are shipped Parcel Select because shipping a long package of solid iron is heavy and expensive! You need to contact us for a price quote if you would like it expedited.

When we make a custom order special for you, it's just that - for you! There are no refunds for custom orders. Since we want you to be happy with your purchase, we do allow in-store credit for an exchange on stock items (notify us within 5 business days of receiving the item).

Additional policies and FAQs
Rust policy: There is no guarantee that these item will not rust over time. The only way to guarantee your items will not rust is to find a local powder coater and powder coat them. If you are going to powder coat, please let us know and we will leave the clear spray off. Most blacksmiths use linseed oil, beeswax, or clear spray to finish products. These are all great, but it is still possible your ironwork will eventually need maintenance. We use a clear satin lacquer spray to finish our products. If your items start to rust, rub the area with an abrasive pad and you can re-coat it with a satin clear spray or pay shipping both ways and we will be happy to re-coat for you free of charge. You can also rub some linseed oil or beeswax on the areas which will seal the metal. This may need to be done about once a year.
