Book Reviews by Chris Holt
The Home Blacksmith, Ryan
Ridgeway, Lumina Media, 2016, softcover, pps. 224.
covers a wide, wide range of subjects relating to blacksmithing. Not only are
there 40 projects outlined in this book, but also tooling to make, tempering,
safety tips, and shop set up suggestions. There is probably something in this
book that will answer questions you may have. It is a good overview of the
subject of blacksmithing. One chapter, “Selling Your Items”, plainly speaks
about the issues regarding selling blacksmith items. It is a chapter worth
reading for those that would like to pursue the marketplace. This is a good
book to have on hand for reference and also for those individuals that are new
to the subject.
