Forging Basics
Hammering Skills for Metalsmiths

Tim McCreight

The success of McCreight's previous videos comes largely from his wealth of information and relaxed presentation. Both are on display again in his latest video, Forging Basics. True to the name, this highly instructive video focuses on the fundamentals of moving metal with a hammer. Through a half dozen exercises and three finished samples, he leads viewers on an impassioned survey of what can be done with a striking tool. Chapters include Tools, Strategies, and Finishing.
