Story Board Sculptures


Story board sculptures are not only good for a student to understand the process of forging a particular item.  They also educate the customer on the skill and patience that is needed to accomplish a project.

Here I’ve turned a story board sculpture into a business card holder that will sit on my display table.

I’ve even commissioned knife maker Jerry Hobbs to hammer forge one from my own design. You can read more about that journey by clicking HERE.


However, I just had to make one myself.


If you couldn’t tell, my creation is the one on the bottom with the red handle.  It’s made from a farrier rasp.

Spoons & Forks


Do not try and bend the spoon, that’s impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth…there is no spoon. Then you’ll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.―Spoon Boy (The Matrix)




It’s fun to re-create eating utensils from centuries ago.

I’m teaching a fork and spoon class in a couple weeks at the newly founded Pine to Prairie Folk School, so I’m doing my due diligence and making a bunch to get my technique down.
