Williamsburg Blacksmiths

Williamsburg, MA - Williamsburg Blacksmiths specialize in authentic reproduction hardware. This is where I buy all the hardware for my house, I have a 1770 Saltbox house. (I have been slow to post photos, that is why there is snow). This barn is the workshop where the hardware is made.



This is the showroom...obviously.



Samples of hardware.



More photos of the showroom.



This photo is taken in the workshop, looks like templates.



The modern way to heat the iron, a gas flame replaces a coal fire.

Companies ought to start paying you for this. :) Just seeing that hardware... I've got a modern raised ranch/bilevel and I hate the modern style, so I've been trying to slowly transform it to my favorite style and do a sort of Shaker/Colonial setup. (The underlying concepts are similar enough, I think.) When I've the time and money to replace hardware, I might go to this place.
