Our son has developed a real passion for blacksmithing! Regardless of the month or weather conditions, he is outside pounding away. Few 16-year-olds are more excited about anvils than cars. (No kidding.)
What started as creating rudimentary objects and learning the basics of handling heated metal, has quickly turned into bladesmithing and custom objects we are installing throughout our home.
Custom Blacksmithing Work
He is currently building up and inventory for sale at our open houses and in our gift shop, and has even started taking some custom orders for plant hangers and copper roses. (Hopefully, that means he can start paying for his own propane and coal!)
