A Tour of Mr. Schrock’s Workshop, c. 1992 Posted on 2017/04/29 by davej Twenty-five years ago today marks my first day working under Mr. Emmanuel A. Schrock in a former livery stable in Ohio’s Amish country and embarking into the world of traditional blacksmithing. The front entrance to the Village Blacksmith Shop. Emmanuel A. Schrock, Blacksmith. The forge and anvil on a typical workday. Looking towards the front door from the forging floor. Looking towards the forging floor from the centre area. Looking towards the stock racks from the forge. View out the front entrance of the shop. Read more about Mr. Schrock and my time working with him in Ohio, USA. See some of the other workshops I have been privileged to work in on the workshop history page.
