Knifemaker Interview Series, a biography workshop in The Way Posted January 23, 2012 I think an ideal arrangement for me, would be to give back much in the way I've learned, and be able to host a regular meeting of interested craftsmen. Not really a big 50+ person hammer-in, but maybe a monthly gathering of 4-6, where we pick a technique to talk about, have a demo, and then open the forge for practice while I sit there and comment on what I see like the wise old man. That'll have to wait, I think, because my shop and yard aren't really set up for it, and there aren't that many people who'd jump at the invite just yet around here. Washington D.C. is a busy place, with busy people, and few have the drive to dedicate much time to this kind of craft, and nobody I know close-by has their own forge. It's a goal, though, to look forward to in the future... I'm open to the idea. All we need to do is arrange a time on a weekend at the BGOP shop, Chris. Doesn't matter if your membership has expired; mine is still active. And I probably know a couple guys who'd jump at the invite.
