My wife was having a tough day, so I made her a little something before class. I love her so much! #marriage #marriedlife #art#blacksmith #blacksmithing #heart #family #artistsoninstagram#maker #make #iron #challengeyourself #makenewthings #cute#love

One does not simply forge a Balrog. One makes it five times in clay with the actual tools, calipers, and a digital scale, photographing progress along the way.

My favorite #sundial #orrery is in a new spot with a new coat of finish, and she’s ready to tell you the time! Though, your phone is probably a tad more accurate… #steampunk #maker #make #blacksmith#blacksmithing #welder #machinist #gears#astronomy #metalwork #badass

Some glamour shots of my first damascus #knife with a #forgefriend on the back! It’s a multibar twist construction in 15n20 and 1084, and I had to make the tiniest set of punches for the little fella on the back. It’s etched in pickle juice, cuz… well, I’m pickle rick!

Two new creations! One is a cutesy lil’ Forge Friend for a customer, the other is my new hand hammer. I forged it myself from a chunk of steel, the handle is hickory and I’ve customized it to be perfect for my hand. It’s going to get a lot of use! 🙂

Can you stop tagging trans stuff in the blacks…

Can you stop tagging trans stuff in the blacksmithing tag? Like we get it, you're a guy trying to creepily pose as a girl. Whatever. Just keep your disgusting inappropriateness out of the tag and to yourself. No one gives a shit. Man up and stop being a sissy. You have a dick. Not a cunt. Act like it.

I’m going to go and laugh like a sissy at the idea of you creepily hiding behind the anonymous tag, triggered by my cute little forged dragons. “Oh nooooo! This inanimate piece of metal was made by A TRANS PERSON!!!! THEREFORE IT IS GENDER DEVIANT! I must anonymously be mean to them FOR THE HONOR OF THE BLACKSMITHING TAG ON TUMBLR!” Dude. No one gives a shit. Get over yourself. Go to bed, it’s past your bedtime. #blacksmithing #transgender

I’ve been teaching extra classes at Prospect Hill Forge in Waltham these past two weeks, and I love it. Teaching is one of my passions, and to do it in such a cozy and loved shop is a blessing.#blacksmith #blacksmithing #teacher#teachersofinstagram #learnnewskills #handmade#handforged #artsy #happystudents #make #maker#makersgonnamake #badass
