  1. So I've been on the hunt for a suitable hood to get my forge inside before winter. This I what I came up with. It was a big hopper system of some sort. I got it inside and hung up today.

  2. I hired a couple of local high school kids to come in this past weekend and clean out one of my mothers' old flower gardens. She has an "eccentric" taste in garden styles and we've been dealing with cleaning them up since we bought the house from them 4 years ago. I told the boys that they would most likely stumble across some interesting finds that would have them scratching their heads. As I was checking up on them Saturday, I noticed them struggling with some sort of massive square metal frame. When I went out to give them hand, they had uncovered an old driveway drag made from 2-8' sec

  5. If you have a Hobby Lobby in your area, they sell the swabs in a small package. I use them when I have them, but am frequently out of them and resort to rags, paper towels, q-tips, make-up removal pads, or whatever else is handy. Old cotton t-shirts work well.

  8. I've been working on my first sheath. I'm at the point I've got the front and back ready to glue together. Have to sew the belt loop before I do that, though because I designed it so the sewing is hidden between the back and one of the wedges inserted to compensate for the guard. Here's what I've got to this point. I know there are a lot of flaws but it's good enough to call it my first sheath. Oh, the spots on the front of the sheath are fresh water and not stains.

  9. Well, at the prompting of Josh... nudge nudge here is a couple more pics of this knife. It comes at the price of delayed deadlines and field of broken promises, but I’m slowly getting it done. What a crazy year. I wanted this knife to have somewhat of a narrative, I shied away from the perfect straight lines and the look of it being laser cut and strayed more towards the thought that it was engraved over time, by the campfire with things that the author saw/experienced at that time. I must admit I’m kinda disappointed in how the sheath came out, the antler port

  10. I got the upper guard peened on... And then peened on the pommel cap. I've got some touch ups to do, and I'll call it done.
