Sitting having a beer with @kelly_ruth__wearable at harvest moon music festival after the blacksmithing demo. #blacksmith #madeinmannitoba #anvil #grainelevator
Met another blacksmith hiding around town. He was moving shop and willing to part with some welding flux. #blacksmith #flux #onlyexcitingforblackmsiths
More options for foot ends. #handforged #ironsketch #blacksmith
I think this is going to be the winning foot. #blacksmith #ironsketch #testing #madeincanada
Fullered scroll sample ends. Potential feet for stands. #blacksmith #handforged #wroughtiron
A new hot cut was needed for the shop. #blacksmith #tool #handforged #madeincanada
2nd try. Profile is getting closer. Lately I feel like I have been forging like a dog. #blacksmith #handforged #madeincanada
I love repetitive patterns #handforged #blacksmith #canada

During some free time this weekend did a first draft of a dog. With some brass brushing a yellow dog. #blacksmith #madeinmannitoba #handforged
Just received a “purchase order” for hooks at my regular pub. #yellowdog #winnipeg #madeincanada #blacksmith #hooks #fridaynight
Concept sketches for a potential project. #blacksmith #sketching #design #drawing
The final result of all the texturing. Not the musket that will eventually rest in the cradle but nice enough to show what it’s used for.  Blacksmithing can ‘support’ a lot of other crafts.  #musket #muzzleloader #blacksmith #display
I love the look of textured plate. I hate the amount of effort it takes to make it flat again. #texture #blacksmith #hammer #madeincanada
