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

I had such a perfect birthday! There was #rainbow cake, and lovely friends, and my wife is the cutest! (She baked the rainbow cake wif unicorns and anvils on top and the unicorn was so pink and preeeeeetty!) AND I capped it all off with an excellent class at The Steel Yard! @thesteelyard   #blacksmith #blacksmithbirthday #teacher #teacherlife#teachersofinstagram #ilovemyjob #badass #beer #beertools#beerstagram #bottleopener #bottleopeners

Just look at this for a second! It’s a shot of one student’s pair of tongs from last night, and, well it’s just interesting. First of all, the bolt-jaw-tons are the work, not the piece of metal gripped in them. That’s a tool! And the pair of tongs gripped in the tongs, but by the reins with the reins? That’s not a pair of tongs either. It’s a spacer for the reins of the bolt jaw tongs!!!!!! 🙂
