I got Titus (my younger brother,) to take plenty of pictures!
Discussing techniques and test pieces!
Enough talk! Let's forge!
Since I was the guest in another smith's shop, I was the apprentice! Master Chase taught me nail making! Sounds simple but it is something I have never done with success!
As usual, you can't trust someone else farther than you can see them, with a camera. So, we have the usual run of bad photos.....I wont scare my readers too much, so I deleted most of the bad ones! I just kept two for laughs!
As usual the day flew by. We made a flux spoon for Chase's shop, a few nails, and finished the day with a basket twist.
The basket twist!
We ended the day with a friendship forged stronger!
I've got two good friends and Master Chase is one of them! Two good friends who have stayed by and helped me through the hard times and proven true when others, whom I held dear, fell away. They've been there to create great memories and good times, as well! I thank God foremost for the friends He's blest me with, and I thank my friends for being who they are! Stand true!
