Terran has taught hundreds of people how to forge steel in his weekly, in-person blacksmithing classes at Brown County Forge.
When he's not teaching, he makes handmade hardware for customers across the U.S. and around the world.
He has also written five books on blacksmithing to share his experience with this ancient art.
The DIY Blacksmithing Course is the result of hundreds of hours of instruction, planning, and research.
All of that information and experience is condensed into easy-to-follow videos and printable handouts for use in your home shop.
