This is my story. Back in the Late 70's my Grandpa's brother visited from Germany. He was an amazing Blacksmith. While Uncle Frank was here he made amazing works of art that are still on the farm today. Keeping this in mind, I decided to give it a try.....
OK the real story is, my friend came over one night for a few drinks not long after I bought my house. We were discussing what to do with the garage; one thing led to another and before I knew it, I owned a forge!
As I started to make custom creations for friends and family, the popularity of my work grew, as did my skill. I taught a few friends how to make knives, and made some knives for friends and family. People would tell me that I should do it full time, and in 2020, I decided that it was time to take this love of working with steel and turn it into a full time job that I could truly look forward to every day.

What is the difference softwood and hardwood?
Softwoods are less dense and produce more smoke which is a better choice for outside use. Hardwoods provide a longer burning and hotter fire which makes them a better choice for indoor use. When using wood for cooking, we would suggest a hardwood. Hardwood also creates less creosote build-up in your chimney.
What size is the wood?
All the firewood is cut into 16” pieces and then chopped into manageable sizes for all fireplaces. The smaller sized wood that doesn’t need to be chopped is less than 5” in circumference.
What is the difference between inexpensive firewood and expensive firewood?
Inexpensive firewood is usually an unseasoned option. It is typically harder to light, keep lit, and produces sparks and spit while burning. An unseen result from the use of inexpensive firewood can lead to creosote build-up in your chimney. More expensive firewood will ignite easier and burn longer, giving you a better value.
