I haven’t posted in a while. Still been working on lots of stuff, but just haven’t been able to take photo’s or write as often as I would enjoy being able to. Ashley and I have welcomed a new crew member! Dale is a wonder and a highlight of everyday. Keep an eye out for more changes to come. – Greg

More power.

I’ve been busy. As always– I’ve been working on new tools. You can never seem to have enough.
I’m welding up my power hammer, not like this, but I wanted to share it anyway. I’ve ogled it for a while. A bit antiquated, but none the less I bet it was top-notch for a small shop.. at least in its own day..

I’ve found a new artist blacksmith to follow. BobbyT keeps an interesting blog over at blogspot.

St. George’s Day demo

I had a grand time helping out Solvar at the St. George’s Day demonstration at Lafayette Village.
I even got to display and vend some stuffs from the forge.

Hooks n’ Hangers are happening!

I finished up my hooks project. I think the Lee’s were very happy, they bought all the hooks I made! I’m going to get a picture of the lamps mounted at some point I hope. I’m really proud of the second pair of hooks I made. I took some photo’s of the near finished products, but I wish I had time to take more! I need to adjust one still close up the bends on the flat mounting part that looks like an upside down heart.










I’ve been working on my large knife blue print a little bit at a time. It’s coming along nicely it’ll look really good when finished I think I’ve got to finish up my Damascus blade soon too.
