"The Blacksmith's Project Book" presents 20 original intermediate and advanced projects for blacksmiths looking to further hone their skills and learn techniques from European master smiths. This hardcover 248 page book, with over 900 high-quality photos, clearly explains the necessary steps and techniques for completing projects which include metallic fusion, damascening, chromatic finishing techniques, foldforming, patination, sculpture forging, and other interesting topics.
Antonello Rizzo's first bestselling project book, "Secrets of the Forge", contained almost 50 original projects by master smiths for beginning and intermediate level blacksmiths. This excellent new book brings the level up a notch and has the intention of also serving as creative fodder for the smiths' own project designs. Rizzo’s two project books together provide blacksmiths with what are probably the most varied, the most interesting and most modern blacksmithing projects available today in a printed format.
The bonus 21st chapter of this book is a fascinating essay presenting the essayist’s heartfelt thoughts on the restoration of old wrought iron.
You can be sure that there is plenty of material in The Blacksmith's Project Book that will be of great interest to any practicing blacksmith.
