Hello All,

Just a few shots of my new shop assistant, Bjorn. I have had to alter the work area to fit his stature, but I think he'll do fine.

Dang Ric ... He's cute. Any idea who the father is? :blink:

 

I'll bet Ric jackhammered a hole in the floor of his shop, brought in 2 tons of concrete and rebar to build a correctly sized well ... all to lower the anvil. He always does everything "right" :)

Dan, Your not the first one to say that........which should worry me, but it always comes from the mouths of folk just like you so.... :blink:

 

As to the other:

I am not sure I always do things right, but I sure take the long way round. :wacko:

He forges just like me. I keep hitting it and nothing happens.

Everything I need to know I learned from the people trapped in my basement.

 

 

I'm out of my mind but feel free to leave a message.

He's adorable. Get 'em started young, get 'em addicted... that's why I am so addicted to sailing tall ships, I got it in my mother's arms. I can only imagine if she'd been a blacksmith...

 

Looks like he's a good assistant.

If I was that cute I could get away with wearing a hat like that. If I was to wear a hat like that people would scream and run....not that they *don't* do that now. :lol:

 

Looks like you have a winner there, Ric. He's definately having a blast. :) He's gotta be your kid. He's got your hammer....
