Really looking forward to seeing where this is going.  Happened to be surfing cable the other day while home sick and came across a Public Broadcasting show that showcased a trip to Seth's forge where he demos forging a hammer head.  Then I started seeing posts about him all over the blacksmithing facebook pages I follow.  Will have to look into taking a class with him.  His work seems to have a real Peter Ross vibe that I really like.  You are doing a wonderful job with this one.

Thanks. Grab a class if you can. It's well worth it. I'm not on FB but he's been posting updates on Instagram for the chest he's building. It's got like 10 spring loaded dead bolts, all forged and filed. It's nuts. There really isn't anyone doing anything close to what he's up to.

I know he did do some work with Peter but I'm not sure to what extent.

When I wrap this up I'll make sure and post a photo. Next project is going to be a hand vise. I'm really excited to get started on that.

Thanks for posting.  Are you saying that Seth is teaching a series of classes that you are taking, or is each "stand-alone"?

If you like this type of work I would also recommend Thomas Latine

These are stand alone classes. I took this one at the Center for Metal Arts in Florida, NY. Recently he was up in Maine at the New England School of Metalwork. Not sure where he'll be next.
