Back from a class at the Appalachian Center for Craft

Recommended Posts

Back from a week at the Appalachian Center for Craft, a campus of Tennessee Tech University, where I taught a week class titled The Hand Forged Axe. Nice place, great sleeping quarters, staff was actively helpful. Photo of the shop and a sample of the axes I demonstrated.

Looks great!  Do the glassblowers still get annoyed when the power hammer shakes their stuff off the shelves next door? :P

I really can't believe that they do not properly secure that hammer.  When I taught there it rocked more than a rocking chair.  Most of the power is lost due to the movement.

We didn't use the hammer, but Danial has build a heavy duty 25 ton press and we did put that to good use.
