People ask how soon will I have an auction, start selling things, etc. But I see this as a golden opportunity to try things and decide if I like them before I sell anything! One example is Ken’s blacksmithing tools and equipment.
Today I visited Joyce, a wonderfully talented blacksmith in nearby Barron, Wisconsin. She had invited Ken and me to come by and see and use her forge. I brought a small project. I hated these towels on the back of this chair. I had bent two coat hangers to experiment and figure out what I wanted.
I brought my coat hangers and measurements to Joyce and she demonstrated and then assisted me in making the second. It was GREAT fun. I see why Ken so enjoyed it. I asked him what he thought after the first time he tried working at a forge and he said, “It’s as fun as making taffy, but it’s too hot to touch!”
So now, here are the two hooks in place and doing their duty – getting the towels where I can use them and off the chair!
This old dog learned a new trick!
