Does anyone have an recommendations for DIY books on working metal for railings, crafts etc. I already know how to weld, but mostly for autobody work. I would like to makes fences, window boxes etc, but I have no idea where to buy iron bar, how to work it etc.

"no idea where to buy iron bar"

Local steel dealer/fabricator.

You can also have it shipped, but length restrictions show up quickly, and weight throws you to motor freight (large truck).
