Using the Rule of 33 to Calculate Profit for a Blacksmith Business: The Business of Blacksmithing
 
08:30
Are you making a profit in your blacksmith business? Are you lost when it comes to quoting a job? In this video, we'll discuss how we use the rule of 33 to figure out our business expenditures and profit margin. I’ve come up with a resource eBook to help you price your forged items called the BLACKSMITH CHEAT SHEET [see the vid here- https://youtu.be/e5U_eobHx6s] or you can download the eBook for $10 from our website at http://www.blacksmithpdfs.com . The three main categories that pertain to running most businesses include: fees (selling fees, credit card processing fees, and taxes), business expenses (overhead shop costs and material costs), and profit (in this case, the owner's cut, so you have some money to live off of). We use this rule of thirds to calculate our own business expenditures here at Christ Centered Ironworks. You can also do the math backwards to calculate how much you should quote a job at. This rule of thumb is great for blacksmiths, or a wide variety of crafters, and general businesses. If you run your business by different rules, we'd love to hear about it in the comments. Check out my downloadable pdfs at www.blacksmithpdfs.com . If you'd like to visit my youtube homepage, you can do so at www.youtube.com/c/christcenteredironworks.

This tutorial video covers how to forge copper bowls on a dishing stump. You don't have to have a fancy swage block to try your hand forming copper. Forging copper is something I do frequently.

I occasionally sell a copper bowl set online, as I offer them in three different sizes. Copper forming is a type of metal art. Copper forming can be almost addicting, once you get the hand of it! I've been doing copper work for years, and making copper art is one of my favorite things! Hammered copper bowls make lovely home decor. My copper finishing skills are top notch. The bowls are formed by raising copper, in metal working terms. Forming copper requires several heats for annealing copper. A blacksmith that works with copper is called a coppersmith. This type of dishing stump is a type of coppersmithing tools that you might find in a coppersmith's studio. I hope to cover more types of coppersmithing techniques in the future.
