Blacksmithing: Hot Techniques & Striking Projects

Blacksmithing: Hot Techniques & Striking Projects Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These amazing techniques and projects offer a modern twist on a traditional art—and theyll transform your image of the “blacksmith” forever. More and more people are discovering the creative pleasure of going into an iron studio, applying high heat to steel, and hammering or pressing the metal into interesting shapes. While often admired, the process can intimidate novices…but this beautifully photographed book will change that. It provides a superb overview of the fundamentals, including various forms of steel, equipment, and safety precautions. Learn how to create a right-angle bend; form a point, flat end, spiral, and curl; and cut metal using hand tools and a plasma torch. Then follow along, step by step, to create beginner-friendly projects, including a simple trivet, ornamental door handle, wall sconce, and even a metal railing.
