Traditional blacksmithing returns to its home roots with "Blacksmithing 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. You can learn how to forge everything from weapons and tools - knives, axes, screwdrivers, hammers, and chains - to home-helpers like forks, coat hooks, towel bars, candleholders, and more!

      "In 135 pages, you can learn to make your own chisels, nails, skewers, pokers, camp sets, chain links and much more. All taught by a guy who studied blacksmithing under a master German smithy, and has his wares in private collections and museums all over the place."
