I just recently harvested hickory and dog wood for my tooling handles. I’m letting the wood dry now untouched. My next steps are to make my anvils out of A11 steel which when I researched is harder than any of the anvils they use today and better than some of the older anvils. I’m looking for tips, advice, and techniques on a blacksmith table. I have wood and metal to use. This table will double over as a woodworking table and the shop itself will be made outside so I have ventilation. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. I have one year to complete this so I’m giving myself plenty of time to do it. With that being said once it’s complete and all tools made(uncertain of the process) I’ll begin to do all carvings by hand meaning no machinery.
