About Me

I was very active in bladsmithing in the mid 80's and into the 90s. Worked with Japanese Smiths when they visited in the US.

Started again in 2000 and created a website some years ago that shows how to make charcoal, forge, box bellows www.twinoaksforge.com .

In 2003 I started my dream of building my own house-by myself. The idea was to take a couple years to do it, set up my forge again and live happily ever after.

It is taking forever, but it is far enough along that I feel the need to return to the forge. I have a place for it but now have to start all over again.

I have practiced Kendo and Iaido since 1993.

I was machinist/programmer for 18 years. Then application engineering manager for Mori Seiki for 10.
Currently Regional Manger for Lyndex-Nikken a machining accessories company.

Jiminy, I can't be that old!
