First fire in the new workshop! My newly relined forge heats up perfectly, everything is laid out just so, only trouble is the different lighting for photography! #blacksmith #blacksmithing#newworkshop #maker #make #getmessy#likeagirl #craft #badass

Sometimes the phrase “Horny Godzilla” is 100% blacksmithing related, 100% on topic, and so I use it in class.

What a blast! I had an incredible time at the New England Blacksmiths Fall Meet! Mark Aspery’s demonstration was beautifully and masterfully done, I took home second place in the forging competition with @eaglepat for a drop tongs forge welded sea dragon, and best of all? I lost a bid for an adorable power hammer. It’s cheaper to build my own.

I’ve been not tumblering for a while, but I’m still alive!!! Apart from teaching, I haven’t done much/any smithing in the past month, but there has been an intersex goat. Named Dobby. And there’s Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Molly Weasley, so many goats. And big woolly woolly sheep. And a puppy. And a farm. I swear I’ll get back to smithing soon!

Wait a minute! This isn’t the forge! Catch me on Season 2 of Reese Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine’s podcast: How It Is! hosted by Diane Guerrero. And yes, I brought some ironwork with me to the recording studio. Did you think I wouldn’t?  @ WGBH

My latest buddy forged from a single piece of 3/4” square stock! He seems to really like iced tea?

Details are so satisfying! I put hexagonal tapers on the back ends of these 5/16ths drifts for class at @thesteelyard ! They got smushed within a few heats, but I’m still glad I put’em there!
