Been busy in the forge turning old pawn shop hammer heads into adze and axe heads. My hands generally take about three days to recover after each session. Blacksmiths are hard.
Shu... so after a very long time I am back in the bay and making some boards. This is a very tricked out custom nose rider for Ben, who has been extremely gracious in waiting so very long.

Long overdue road trip to wild places. 300000yr old hand axes in the Karoo, Kraal thorns as big as your hand and endless knarly barrels. Great way to unwind.
