I've followed Real Terrain Hobbies on YouTube for a while now and at the end of last year he released a Builders Kit in collaboration with MuseKits with everything you need to build a Blacksmith. I've finally gotten around to building it and will try to post an update each week on how it's going until it's finally complete!

This first step was very simple, it just required assembling the template using wood glue. This gives the base structure to then add the wood and brick to in future steps.
