Knifemaking or Blacksmith Forge Tutorial by Logan-Pearce Knifemaking or Blacksmith Forge Tutorial by Logan-Pearce
Video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=cP7zIh…

Making a coal forge for blacksmithing or bladesmithing. This tutorial shows how my wooden coal forges are made. It doesn't require a welder or anything like that. I find that it is the cheapest way to build a forge, just short of digging a hole in the ground. lol.

I will be using this forge to make most of the knives in my up coming tutorials. :D

As a guy who re-makes his forge every year this is some good work.

Clever use of the PVC by adding a spacer. I usually just use a metal pipe. This could have saved me so much headache.

I have gone to a full brick forge with fire bricks on the inner most layer. I make a long not too wide area for the coal that works real well for the large projects I do. And is much easier to maintain/clean.

I also cover the top with wood to keep the heat in.

im thinking i may end up doing this as i have the space in the backyard to start setting up an area to do it. also thought of an alternate use for this forge which would be a small fire bit for late night warmth while star gazing (i live on the edge of town so this is plausible for me ^_^

lol! I could be used for that. The good thing is you can move it wherever you want. So if you don't forge for a while, you can just put it up. :D
