On most days, I am a machinist, but today I am a machinist! These gears and bearing shafts are the result of about 40 hours at the lath and many more at my computer and the waterjet machine.

A few weeks ago, I demonstrated blacksmithing to 76 transgender kids. It was an honor to be able to bring my craft to such a wonderful community! And it was wonderful to be in a place where literally everyone was trans! I don’t often think about how much being trans is in the back of my mind at all times, as a matter of passing or being different. It was amazing to just let that go for a day.
