  1. Thank you all for the kind welcome! I will definitely look into the NWBA. In my very limited experience, it is much easier to learn with help rather than to go into something alone. Frosty: Yes, the Roslyn Cafe is still operating, I haven't actually been in for a long time though. My mother actually worked as a waitress there for a little while when I was younger. That is pretty cool that you've passed through here before!
  2. Hello all! I've been coming here for a while to get information, and I figured that I should make an account and introduce myself. My name is Matthew, I am 19 and I live in Roslyn, Washington. I have been playing around with metalwork and tools for a long time, but I only really got serious about blacksmithing recently when I decided to finally build a proper forge. I originally was inspired by my older brother, who makes some pretty incredible knives and things. However, I have found that kind of finishing work to be a bit tedious, so now my interests have shifted towards making tools, hardware, and maybe even some decorative stuff. In any case, one thing is for sure; I still have a lot to learn. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone here and expanding my knowledge. This website is pretty incredible, it truly contains a vast amount of knowledge! Thanks everyone! Matthew S.
  3. This looks very similar to mine. I agree that a curved floor is not as easy to work with as a flat one, so I put a few firebricks in the bottom. Other than that, looks good.
