Is blacksmithing a lost art? Not according to this master craftsman. If might be one of the world’s most ancient crafts, but it remains an exciting and essential one today. Percy W. Blanford presents twenty-four different projects: some are for novices, requiring only a few tools, improvised equipment, and a single propane torch; others call for the skill and equipment of an experienced smith. Projects include: punches and chisels, traditional candlestick, door latches and bolts, garden tools, weather vanes, fences and railings, tables, wheelbarrow… and many more! A book of ideas and suggestions, rather than an instruction manual on blacksmithing techniques, this volume features eighty detailed figures and diagrams. It also includes a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, and suggestions for variations in design.
