Another new building completed for De Lancy. This time it's the Blacksmith's forge. Well those horses aren't going to shoe themselves! Details of how the build went can be found on my blog:

Straw in a blacksmith's forge? And all those sparks.

Good point FourD. Perhaps that's why towns burned down so often!

Depends on why the blacksmith used the wagln,forage maybe charcoal. He isn't using the wagon for firing like my Napoleonic era iron forge.

Technique question: What material did you use for the straw?

Hi Wingnut, sorry for the delayed reply, the straw is sisal garden twine cut into short lengths. That separates the individual strands so that it looks like individual stalks.
