The owner is very likable and friendly to all levels of visitors , the shop is certainly very old fashioned as you should expect at a heritage center.

Stopped to listen to a demonstration during a festival. Very impressed with the skill and talent shown. Hung around to ask questions and was practically given a tour of the place. The owner is so friendly and informative. Will be returning to have a custom made holder for our 1800's steam engine copper bell. This guy can do it right!

Pretty cool to watch as a local artist watched her "baby" get it's finishing touches that will allow it to sit atop a local downtown Grapevine building.

Will's expertise with iron is just amazing. From silver roses to firepit chili pots, you will see stars and so much more when you visit. This craft is so very interesting to watch. Bring the kids to learn about blacksmithing! Love you guys!

See how things were made in the old days. It is great to see young blacksmiths in training. The bats in the building are a pleasant surprise. Take your nickels and see them transformed into Texas hats. Great people! Great learning experience!

Ran into this place while visiting the trains. The guy allowed us into the workshop and showed us around. Very cool pieces. Very old school and even rustic but I can't say enough about how nice this guy was even gave the kids a little souvenir. If your already there looking at the trains stop in.
