1st and 2nd Hammer-Hawks & My Mark!

First and 2nd Hammer-Hawks in the works! Super fun to make, and loads of Steel on the hammer heads so many options too! #1 was a Tiny Ball-peen & is really special...He's got a long history and it's an honor to Transform him for his owner! 2nd Hammer was a masonry hammer...a big'un - lots of Sledge Hammer smashing to flatten him out I tells ya! 

Lastly, made up my Makers Mark - check it out along with the Hammer-Hawks in MY WORK

Axe Throwing & Designing

Hey everyone, back at the workshop today finally getting my makers mark ready...nothing spectacular yet but HR is a start! My buddy Merlin dropped by today to the forge and we had a blast knife n Axe throwing! Check out the riddle of steel for our Adventure-time pics My work has some concept draw overs also. 

Paracord Axe-bondage, Pappy Goat, & Berries!

Bunch of super cool Paracord came into the forge today! Some Axe's are getting annealed (heated up in the homestead oven) tonight, then tied up real good. 

Next is Pappy Goat... his original cast-off form was a misshapen double wrench that no body loved. This is his 2nd go... he was destined for greatness weeks ago, but the forge welding test he was involved with ended in disaster! Pappy Goat lost a lot of his body....but today he's been forged anew!  

Blackberries - tis the season! So good, & if you visit, you can pick some! Yes Visit!
