Forge and Anvil

Been thinking a lot about building a Forge here on the farm. From what I have read so far, I think this would be a great hobby and a very useful skill to have. I can think of a ton of things that I need to make for myself, and maybe others. Check out the video below for a little info on just how these things work. My plan is to build on similar to the one shown in the video. I want something that I am able to move around and cheap and easy to build. I have never done any steel or iron work but I know that I have enough other skills that I can pick this one up too. I am more than willing to put in the practice required to learn. I will be posting more on the forge project in the near future.

Well, I can't watch videos very well here, being on a slow dial-up Internet connection, but a forge sounds like a really interesting idea. Looking forward to hearing more about it.
