keep track of what I’m up to

Today I closed the door (literally) on the workshop that has been my domain for the last nine years. I am beyond excited for the new studio, but I leave this one with a keen sense of bittersweet; this is where I truly launched my career. It is where I learned so much of what I know about working with my hands. It is where I became a master of my craft. Above all, this building has hosted so many amazing experiences, and beneath its roof I have established dozens of friendships, some as close as they get. I’m taking much more with me than what remains behind. I will miss this place but the new one will be better.

Well, after 6 days, 90 feet of Uhaul loads, and about 150 man hours of heavy lifting, here’s a shop update: we’ve got 100% of the easy stuff 50% moved. 🙄 #workshop #artstudio #imtired #heavystuff

Spray foam! Emiliano @sunandstarsforge was a little glum because by the time we got there the foam had cured and was too firm to eat.

Tales in the dust. Nine years ago I bolted my bench vise down against fresh plywood. Stark contrast.

It is an unwritten rule of life that when you need to move a whole bladesmithing studio, you’re going to encounter situations like this. No Emiliano, those won’t fit in there. #moving #bladesmith #swords #packing @sunandstarsforge
