Each time I pick up the hammer I learn new things, and not a day goes by that I don't pick up the hammer. I love turning scraps into beautiful and functional pieces of art for the kitchen and home."

Over at his web site we met Trukio, his blue heeler and German shepherd mix Shop Dog. We also spotted a picture of a poured Guinness in his shop, which we can really appreciate even if it may not be the safest way to do blacksmithing.
