Hi my name is Steve Estenson and I am Foxwood Forge. I operate a one man blacksmith shop. I have been blacksmithing since 2002. In 2015 I became the first Florida journeyman blacksmith passing the qualifications set forth by the Florida Artist Blacksmith Association.
My shop is set up with three forges so I can teach classes. Foxwood Forge is a traditional blacksmith shop, combining the old with some of the modern technologies to help keep costs down. The classes are on coal forges and use traditional forging methods. After the first five or six classes I found I was winding up with extra tongs made during each class and had to come up with something to do with them. This is why I started selling online in 2014. The store has helped to offset my blacksmith habit and helped to keep the metal rack full. I now have many types of tongs and tools available. Every size of metal requires a different set of tongs, so it does not take long to build up quite a collection.
We can do custom tooling, specialty metal work, or most anything blacksmith related.
This is where I try to keep you updated about whats going on in the shop. Information about blacksmith tongs hand tools and projects just for starters.
