Blacksmithing Basics for the Homestead

Joe DeLaRonde

 

Traditional blacksmithing returns to its roots with Blacksmithing: Basics for the Homestead. Here author and master blacksmith Joe DeLaRonde demonstrates the basic skills and techniques needed to make the tools and accoutrements required for life on the homestead or ranch.

Detailed and easy-to-understand instructions, illustrations, and photographs will help the beginning blacksmith set up the forge, get the fire hot enough for welding, and craft the tools needed for blacksmithing.

Learn how to forge everything from weapons and tools-knives, axes, screwdrivers, hammers, and chains-to home-helpers like forks, coat hooks, towel bars, and candle holders, and more!
