If you are interested in blacksmithing or knifemaking but need a simple forge to get started, you do not have to shell out a lot of money for your initial beginner efforts. You can actually build your own forge yourself to use to practice your skills until you are ready to upgrade.
Blacksmithing generally requires the heating of metals with a forge. This tutorial shows you how to create your do-it-yourself forge in your workshop. The parts of the forge involve items such as pieces of steel, bricks, and of course the burner, all of which are relatively easy to acquire. You would need a basic knowledge and skill in welding in order to assemble the forge.
However, the instructors of this tutorial are very informative and passionate in sharing their knowledge. You will not only learn a step by step guide on their forge building process but get practical tips and advice in forging and blacksmithing as you work to master the craft.
