Not a cooper

I thought he was a cooper, but a cooper is a guy who makes barrels. This is a blacksmith.

This was the highlight of Plimouth Village I think. It's really hot in here! He just finished using the billows (is that the word) to heat up the iron and he's shaping it now. The metal was red hot at first. It was real fire and sparks and everything.
