THIS IS MY STRONG HOLD. THIS IS WHERE I DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND. IT IS HERE AND NOW THAT I MAKE MY STAND.

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.
Just a guy that was born and raised in West Virginia and moved to Kentucky trying to raise a family on a small farm. We have goats, ducks, chickens, lots of dogs and raise a garden. Trying to live life simple and as peacful as possible. It's not as easy as it sounds.
