You only channel to: A) provide workshop's access to the corridor below, and B) remove the last tile and break into the magma such that your miner isn't insta-killed by molten rock.

Other than that, a steel grate or a twisty tunnel(if you don't have steel/iron) keeps the critters out.

I'm not too sure that the melt code works as advertised, currently. I has a felsite forge with an iron anvil for two years, didn't affect it at all. My andersite fortification barriers likewise were still solid despite being soaked in 7/7 magma for that same length of time. I have temperature on, so either things take a very long time to melt or the melt code doesn't work.

I replaced the 3 forges when I got a delivery of steel from a human caravan. Now I have 3 steel-block forges with steel anvils.  :D

I'm just wondering all the calamities that would happen if Toady put cave-ins, magma pressure, and magma melting into the game all at once, without causing enough change to force a new world generation.

Eek...

AFAIK, Steel !> Iron. What type of anvil/forge you have doesn't seem to make any difference, so there's no real point in having a steel anvil/forge. Unless you're just doing it for the sake of aesthetics, but I personally can think of better things to use good steel on..
