Caedmon's Smithy

Post by caedmon »

Just reconfigured my smithy for a set of homeschool blacksmithing classes my wife & I are giving, thought I'd share the pics. Not entirely period, but it is non-electric.

The big changes are the new sawyer's anvil and that all anvil stands are sunk into the ground. The main anvil, and the post vise are both sunk more than 2 feet.

That looks so amazing :mrgreen:

Awesome setup. Looks like a great configuration for teaching.

Very nice ! Plenty of room to walk around and access each anvil from all sides.

That would be awesome, let me know when you start firming up your plans and we'll try to get something cool on the books.

We have two classes 6 week classes, one with 9-10 year olds and one with 13-14 year olds (and a beefy 10 year old younger brother)

We are starting with fire pokers/hot dog sticks (because... swords), then we'll do hooks and finish with leaf charms/keychains. If everything goes really well, we'll add nails at the end. but that's stretching it.
