You will find here a collection of interests ranging from historical arms and armor to small engines. Most of what I build and make is done with scrap. I am a father and husband living in the swamps that make up the northern half of the province known as Florida. I operate a small smithy at our homestead, neither of which provide much in the way of financial profit. In whatever other ways they are of benefit, you will have to judge for yourself. In any event, it should prove entertaining…
Scroll down to see what is on my desk at the moment. Scroll past that to read what I have written in the past.
My current personal project is this dagger. I have been banging away(pun intended) at it for over two years. Like most of my panoply, it has changed and evolved as it was being made. It is finished, but for two respects: first, the pommel must be further peened for a tight fit of the parts; second, I have made no sheath for it yet. It sits on my desk and cries to be finished.
In the meantime you can scroll down to see articles and recipes written by myself and my wife Alexandrea.
Here are contained our previous articles. Of which you will find that now there are eleven. Growing little by little!
I sincerely hope you have enjoyed your little romp through our madness. You can always come back for more. We have a lot planned to show you.
