The Backyard Blacksmith takes the mystery out of blacksmithing, but not the magic...

There is an increasing interest and revival in the art of blacksmithing as a hobby and art, and both men and women are becoming at-home blacksmiths. Blacksmithing is a simple, rewarding craft anyone can enjoy in their backyard or home workshop -- even beginners can produce useful and beautiful projects on their first try.

The Backyard Blacksmith shows you how blacksmithing can be easy to learn, and a rewarding hobby, with some patience and a working knowledge of metals, basic tools, and techniques. Through instructions and illustrations, readers will learn to make simple tools and useful items, such as nails, hinges, and handles, and also an interesting mix of artful projects, such letter openers, door knockers and botanical ornaments.

Lorelei Sims is a blacksmith and metalworking artist, and the owner of Five Points Blacksmith Shop in Charleston, Illinois. For examples of her work, see her website blacksmithchic.com

    What a great read this is. Excellent textbook style information with lots of great pictures and illustrations. This is geared mostly for the beginner and the processes of getting started. There is an invaluable reference section to help the begining smith network and locate those hard to find items. Text is written with a sharp wit, laced with blacksmith humor, and plenty of encouragement. Sims has done an excellent job of putting her passion on paper. The photographer is as much of an artist as the author, the photos are outstanding. All in all, one of the best books i've read on the subject.

    I am new to blacksmithing and was looking for a book with information that was not overly complicated. This book is great. It gives very detailed information that I was able to use from the first day. The pictures are very informative. In the back of the book are several projects with varying levels of complexity. The instructions to do these projects are step-by-step and very clear. I have already been working on several of them. If there is one blacksmithing book you must have this is it!!!
