  1. Built 2 matching balcony railings that will got on a building in Downtown Kellogg, Id. Hand drawn design, which i then text a pic to the customer for approval...... i do this because that is as advanced as I get. I don't do CAD..... I do hot steel. My apprentice and I then hand forged all the scrollwork and organic elements and laid them out. Once we got the 2 matching main panels done then we started on the 4 matching side panels. I am really happy about this project and how it turned out. It took about 90 hours to produce. I will post pictures of it installed. I have an instagram account that I post 90% of my work on if you want to keep up with what is going on in my forge.

    Damascus investment piece for a local orchard owner.
  5. This is a stair railing I've just finished and installed for a customer in Co. Leitrim, Ireland. It's all hand forged with pass throughs, ball nuts and rivets. It was partly inspired by the willow that grows around my customers cottage, and partly by the idea of a slinky flowing down the steps.
  6. This is the set of knives that will be presented to the American Bladesmith Society judging board in San Antonio Texas on January 25, 2014. These knives are being judged for my advancement to Journeyman Smith. Each Knife is forged from 5160 carbon steel. Handle material varies between cocobolo wood and stabilized Koa. The guards are 416 stainless steel. The knife pictured at bottom is the performance knife. It passed all testing including the 90 degree flex test and did not crack ! The handle material is Blue G-10. I began making knives in September of 1996. The gentleman responsible for getting me started along is Billy Jo Brown of Live Oak Fla. His work at the time was simply astonishing to me at the age of only 16, and to see the process of making such a tool and forging it from a coil spring was enough to set the hook. These many years later I decided to take the steps and met my requirements to be judged for Journeyman Smith by the A.B.S. The days now I look back at my younger years and my early efforts in knifemaking and just have to smile. It's been a long road leading to this, but for all the knifemkers that I have met and the interesting projects I've done I must say that I wouldn't trade it for anything. Thank you Billy Jo Brown for setting the hook, Joel Stuart for his advise and help in my beginnings, he will be missed ! Randy Spanjer, John Davis, Gary House, Ed Schempp, and especially Tommy Morris for your friendship over the years.

  9. Hey everyone, Inspired by the work of John Neeman tools, I have been wanting to shift my iron work to wood working tools. Having some spare time in the shop, I decided to try my hand at forging a Froe. For those of you who do not know what a froe is, I'll explain. A froe is a tool used by old time frontiersmen to make wooden shingles, or short boards. The edge of the froe is set on top of a log sitting on it's end, and then the top edge of the froe is struck by a wooden mallet. When the wood starts to split, you can pull backwards or forwards on the wooden handle to control the direction of the split in the wood. I forged this froe out of a piece of leaf spring, and then hand carved the handle using a draw knife and spoke shave. The handle it's self is made of a piece of Cherry, harvested off of my farm.

Blade : 208 Layer random Ladder pattern Damascus. 1095 & 15n20 6 1/8" long Handle material : Dyed and stabilized Whitetail deer antler.
  11. This is a recent piece for a international client. This knife was made and sent to a client in N.E. Ireland. The blade is 5160, and the handle material is stabilized Bog Oak. The client and I using Skype were able to talk face to face so to speak, and he was able to watch the entire making of his knife. What a wonderful bit of technology when two people from so far away can talk face to face.
