Backyard Blacksmithing

by WoodlandsTV ~ 11 August, 2017 ~ 15 comments

Here we see Allan Course (the Backyard Blacksmith) at the Bentley Woodfair, demonstrating how to make a simple but effective hook from a six inch nail using an inexpensive, mobile forge set-up - ideal for woodland working. Allan`s skill is apparent and his enthusiasm is infectious - as he encourages us to have a go, keep safe and enjoy! http://www.bentley.org.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Forge and Fire

by WoodlandsTV ~ 1 October, 2013 ~ 3 comments

Master Blacksmith, Mark Constable, shows us how to make a portable forge out of a metal bucket, a metal pipe and a foot pump. Mark has found this an ideal way to produce a working charcoal fire without the need for electricity. He expertly fashions a fire steel on his forge to create sparks with a flint. Mark`s son Harry shows us how char cloth, made from natural fibre, can be ignited by a single spark and then used to light a tinder bundle to start a bigger fire.
