Forging my own Woodworking Tools

Forging my own Woodworking Tools
Help Support this project and others!

When I first started getting really into handtool woodwork, I realized if I learned basic blacksmithing, I could make my own handtools, so I set out to make all the tools I’d need to turn the trees I fell at the farm into heirloom quality furniture. I forged a drawknife, a carving axe, several carving knives, chisels, an adze, splitting wedges and made my own shavehorse. Check out those videos on my channel. Green woodworking, and riving green wood for furniture is an important skill to learn because it teaches a lot about wood grain, wood movement, and why wood “acts” the way it does. Becoming a blacksmith was just a means to an end for me, and another step towards sustainability and self-sufficiency on my homestead. I’m incredibly thankful for the instructors and facilities at Pratt Fine Arts Center for the opportunity to learn forging and metal work. If you’re in the Seattle area, be sure to check them out-

  1. This video is very well produced, the aesthetic is beautiful. You must put as much work into the video production as the projects.

  2. Hi! I'm from Ubatuba city, Brazil.

    I like you very much!

    1:10 I liked the "easel press" that you are sitting on it.

    Can you teach me how to do this or do you have printed plans?

  3. Good video. One request. Really like the background guitar and background in other videos. Could you include link to music in future video description section? Live you videos very much, especially like you blend of skills. Keep on keeping on.

  4. Ladies like Anne and April will save us in the the zombie apocalypse men. I, for one, am comforted.
