I took first blacksmithing Class in September 2000 and John C. Campbell Folk School. I returned home and began establishing my forge or smithy. I joined the Alex Bealer Blacksmith Association of Georgia and continued my study of blacksmithing. In July I was elected president of the association and served three terms in that office and have served in other capacities there. In 2007 I moved to northeast Tennessee and built my new home and smithy on the southern tip of Big South Fork NRRA (National River & Recreation Area). In 2008 I was appointed to the Board of Directors of ABANA (Artist Blacksmith Association of North America).
I consider myself an Artist Blacksmith and Knife Maker.
I began my blacksmithing education in 2000 by taking a class at John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina. When I returned I immediately began furnishing my smithy and attending meetings at the Alex Bealer Blacksmith Association of Georgia. I served three turms as president and have served on the Board of Directors of the Artist Blacksmith Association of North America (www.abana.org).
I now live in North East Tennessee and spend my time in the blacksmith shop making things that interest me as well as making knives and building and selling belt grinders, disk grinders and parts for you to build your own grinder. I also have products for sale for the construction of Gas Forges.
Please note that all sales are FOB the shipper. If you want your shipment insured be sure and ask that it be added to the shipping costs.
