The owner was fun. He told us jokes, traded me a punch coin for w/e I had to trade and really knew his stuff. Came here for the geocache, stayed for the entertainment.

Will's expertise with iron is just amazing. From silver roses to firepit chili pots, you will see stars and so much more when you visit. This craft is so very interesting to watch. Bring the kids to learn about blacksmithing! Love you guys!

See how things were made in the old days. It is great to see young blacksmiths in training. The bats in the building are a pleasant surprise. Take your nickels and see them transformed into Texas hats. Great people! Great learning experience!
