Thanks to @grburr for help getting these in place. My legs are pretty wobbly on a ladder.

Made a set tongs for folks visiting in the Wave Tour of the interlake artists. #tongs #blacksmith #madeinmannitoba
Some of my favourite books on drawing. They have really helped my design sense. #architecture #blacksmith #sketching
Big pieces in the forge tonight. 6x1/4 plate. Texturing a base for a musket stand. #iron #forge #blacksmith #madeincanada
Taking a moment to brag on my mother. All of these items (except the pot) were made by her.  #badassmother #blacksmith #copper #flower
Pam “Mom” Jenkins made the wood handle to the trowel I forged as a birthday gift for a friend. A mother/son project complete. #trowel #blacksmith #gardentool #mother #madeincanada
Picked up this green monster today. It’s a spindle carver.  Handle making? #axehandle #tools #looksdangerous
This came home with me tonight at a bit of a steal price. Happy to add it to the stable of tools for make axe handles. #blacksmith #wood
