Black Oak Forge, LLC Demonstration and Manufacturing Day Event 2016

Black Oak Forge, LLC is a local traditional blacksmith shop. We specialize in one-of-a-kind, hand forged iron art. On August 27, 2016 we hosted our 2nd annual demonstration day event. This year we combined it with our Manufacturing day event! Our Master blacksmith, Rodger, set up his forge area outside to demonstrate the art of blacksmithing and to address questions. Rodger was able to have 3 of his apprentices on hand to show their growing talents in blacksmithing. Collin, Shaun and Connor have all spent time working with Rodger in our shop. Our local Ferrier blacksmith, Kelly, was able to join us as well demonstrating the work that Ferrier blacksmiths do. The PFERD USA, Inc. also asked to join our event day and they brought their education van pout to our shop and shared lots of knowledge on metal finishing to all. The Fond du lac Society of Model Railroad Hobbyists took care of a great Brat/Hamburger Fry for us. So it was a great day full of fun and education for all!!!
