Alec Steele

My name's Alec Steele and here you'll find near-daily videos documenting the process of building some awesome projects here in the shop. As a blacksmith, most of the projects start as lumps of steel, or stacks of different alloys for making damascus, that I forge out into blades, sculpture, art or tools before taking the project to the machining equipment or into the grinding room for finishing. Each project teaches me a lot and stretches the bounds of my knowledge. I make a lot of mistakes but they serve as an excellent teacher. There's always something important for me to learn in the shop!
I want my work to be the spark that ignites the desire for you to get into your shop (or kitchen/basement/garage) and make something too! Whether it's stitching a leather wallet or forging a giant sword, you'll love the creative process.

    I can tell your new buisness is going well Alec, you seems to be a lot less stressed. (Or its something else but I notice something) Really happy for you, I've bin watching your video's since the time Joey was with you (btw, would love to see him visiting you someday). You've grown so much. So much respect for you. Keep it up Alec. I am really enjoying your video's, and it inspired me to convert my little garage into a woodwork shop. I've bin thinking about forging as well but that hobby would be to loud here. I'm living in a pretty dense neighbourhood. And I don't want to use my newly forced knives to fight off the neighbour. Thank you, and Will, for the amazing, inspiring video's.

    Alec, you can use (H2O2 ) Hydrogen per oxide for etching with ferric chloride. As H2O2 is a strong oxidizer so you don't need to stir up and add Oxygen from air.
