You need good light, it needs to be well ventilated, weatherproof, and have a dirt or concrete floor (nothing flammable)

How do you define blacksmithing?
Blacksmithing is the transformation of raw materials to finished products using heat and the repetitive motions of tapering, flattening, scrolling and texturing.
