Restorations & unique custom design

"The forge is a mixture of different old parts. I have a fire pot the fire pot's over one hundred years old. I have a hand blower that's on it that's over a hundred years old, and I made a table with a retractable hood over it to use as I need in my shop. Other than making a fire pot myself from scratch, it's just not worth buying any new one. They have companies where you can still buy some of this stuff, but I feel a connection with old parts. A lot of my work is restoration work and when I'm doing a restored job, I make it a point to use every bit of the original parts to the piece as possible."
