    Interesting, a craft I have been interested in learning, just no time.

    Just checked out the site because I have a close friend that wants to become a blacksmith(old world kind). There was also a great article on small scale blacksmithing two issues ago in Backwoodsman Magazine.

    The Log Cabin Store in Lodi, Oh. has a whole shelf devoted to old world blacksmithing, lots of good books. They have an online catalog also. I love Back Woodsman Magazine, I read every issue cover to cover. It is loaded with good ideas for scouting events!

    what kind of stuff do you make? I make a little bit of everything myself. My dad and my grandfather were & my dad still does blacksmith, so having grown up around it, I think at one time or another I've either tried or have made it. I'm glad to see other people are relearning this skill, I think it will be a very valueable thing to know how to do.
