I have made a few more videos. I am really enjoying making these. Lots of this is common knowledge for most of you guys, but it might help somebody.

Love the Robin Trower soundtrack on the pitch bowl video.

Thanks for taking the time to do these.

Thanks! All of the music I use is from a video game soundtrack, specifically Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam. I won't be making videos in the next week because of finals, but after next Tuesday I'll start back up.

A couple more! I am enclosing my forge before the winter gets too bad. I'm using all free stuff from a contractor friend.

Good videos, my knife tongs came out like yours and are functional, but far from pretty. LOL.

I like the forge set up, looks like the spacing allows for a good work flow. Jealous of the space and dedicated work space. Keep at it dude. Well done.

Thanks! My tongs are never pretty, but if it looks stupid and it works, it ain't stupid!

I'm not sure, I have a few things on my mind. I want to stock up on folding and fixed blade knives for the NC State Fair in October, finish my first ladder pattern blade, or make a big chopper with the wedged tenon design to really test the limits of the design.
