Greetings from Michigan - I am just starting out with blacksmithing and looking to tap into the knowledge and experience of the men and women in the forums. I am an IT guy by trade and in my spare time I love to work with my hands and anything physical in nature. My hobbies include photography, woodworking, building and most recently blacksmithing and metalworking (welding, ...). I enjoy designing things and seeing creations come to life through hard work. I work hard and play hard -- driven by the quote from Thomas Edison "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.". I look forward to chatting with many of you and learn and give insight along the way!
