Blacksmithing is one of the traditional lost arts deserving re-discovery by anyone interested in do-it-yourself building and crafting. Creating ones own apparatus from metal enhances wood-working- stonework- building- and restoration work. Traditional builder and historic preservation consultant Charles McRaven shows how practical- simple- and rewarding the forging of hand tools can be. Having discovered blacksmithing himself when he moved back to the land in the 1970s- Charles McRaven tells readers all they need to know to set up their own smithies and begin blacksmithing. Over the years- McRaven claims he has made almost every mistake that can be made while perfecting his skills- and he shares this hard-won knowledge with readers in a readable and humorous style. The simple and clear instructions supplemented by the step-by- step photography- show how to build a forge- how to make and/or acquire tools- and how to use those tools to create utilitarian items of lasting beauty and durability....
