Bob's Ironwork
Welcome! My name is Bob Ouellette.  I am an professional blacksmith, bladesmith, machinist, and tool maker.  I began my journey in blacksmithing and bladesmithing in 1999, when I was 12 years old. There is no way I would be where I am today if it weren't for the unwavering support of my parents.  It has been a long journey and I have been fortunate enough to have some truly masterful teachers along the way. I began machining in 2009 as an intern while attending the American College of the Building Arts, located in Charleston, SC.  My career as a machinist has taken me all over the world, working in a variety of industries, including shipbuilding and repair, steel and aluminum manufacturing, nuclear power, and a wide range of other industries.

I have a passion for solving problems. I have some exciting projects in the works that will change the way that custom knives are ordered and produced.  I'm also working on the creation of product lines for blacksmiths, bladesmiths, and machinists.  In the future, I hope to offer tools for a wide variety of trades.
