Boston Blacksmithing: Tools and Techniques

Blacksmiths are professionals that create iron features using a hammer and anvil; this process is referred to as forging.

The craft has evolved in a big way over the centuries and a number of different tools and techniques are used in the work such as:

Keep Them Always Safe: Gate Designs for Pets

Pets can bring great joy and comfort to anyone’s life, but they’re a big responsibility.

Be prepared: Importance of Fire Escape Service

No one really believes they’ll experience a disaster like a raging fire until they’re right in the middle of it. It is easy to ignore the fire safety arrangements of a property and let them fall into a state of disrepair. Unfortunately, this can place your well-being at risk and can even lead to fatalities. At Boston Ironworks, we believe property owners should maintain their fire escapes well to ensure they can be used safely during an emergency.
