Maker Story

Artisan Crafted for Nearly 100 Years

In 1923, coal mine owner Wendell McMinn August tasked a blacksmith who worked in his mine with forging door latches for his home. In time, this operation expanded beyond just door latches and ninety-five years later, Wendell August Forge remains one of the oldest and largest crafters of hand-wrought ornamental metalware.

Wendell August gifts are unique symbols of the stories, traditions, and milestones that bind us together. From weddings to birthdays to the perfect Christmas present, this Maker takes great pride in crafting gifts of enduring beauty. Using hand and hammer, their master craftsmen work tirelessly to ensure every piece they forge is special.
