Bay View Forgeworks

Come watch as shapeless hunks of metal are turned into beautiful pieces of art by members of Milwaukee Makerspace.
See rail spikes made into bottle openers and old tools become knives. Bring a piece of scrap steel and walk away with a memory.

Having wanted to be a blacksmith since I was eight I finally joined the Milwaukee Makerspace 20 years later. Since then I've spent close to 2,000 hours at the forge making knives and other tools for friends and family.
