Take a step back in time and see an old world craft being practiced behind the doors of Ponderosa Forge located in a small mountain town on the eastern slopes of the Oregon Cascades.

We take pride in using traditional methods of blacksmithing to produce hand forged ironwork that replicates the craft of a bye-gone era, a time when “hand-made” was the only way!

Nothing compares to the sound of hammers striking iron and the feel of the intense heat as we transform iron bars into beautiful works of art.   You’ll see old world practices and craftsmanship just as it was practiced in the mid-1800’s. In fact, some of our machinery dates back that far! Watch video

The look and feel of true hand forged ironwork is different than mass-produced, painted or powdercoated cast iron and fabricated steel. All of our products are finished with a natural patina, and age old wax and oil finishes.

"Necessity is the mother of invention". If you can't find what you are looking for in our "hand forged product line" give us a call, and we will design something to fit your needs. Some examples of our work are:

Our work is featured in some of the finest destinations resorts, Lodges and restaurants, plus hundreds of homes throughout the nation. Take a look at Our Projects to view some of our products and custom creations in their natural setting.

When you want the best of the best, consider a hand forged, hand crafted iron product from your friends at “The Forge.”
