I had a great time doing a quick interview with Mark Aspery. He's
known for his teaching and demonstrating skills of traditional
blacksmithing techniques. He travels the country teaching and
demonstrating as the "Mark Aspery School of Blacksmithing." Mark is
the author of three books, and is the current editor for ABANA’s
magazine "Hammer’s Blow."
If you like what you hear and want to hear more from Mark Aspery,
you can listen to our in-depth interview that will soon be
available on the BlacksmitHER.com podcast page.
The juicy tidbits that we cover :
His favorite part of writing a book. (Spoiler
alert - it’s the end!)
Tips on photographing metal and tools.
Mark's process of producing a book, and how long it
His latest favorite hobby of mountain biking.
Mark’s most unusual blacksmithing job : straightening a 40 ft long
I-beam with an oxy-acetylene set up!
Ways that mild steel has changed over the years, and how he enjoyed
working with the older version as it would flow better.
How he got his YouTube start, and how it has grown to 10 million
