Custom 18 inch x 30 inch grill

There has been a lot of custom orders happening at the shop.  Here is the latest.  The customer wanted a  grill for his fire pit that he would be able to slide his cast iron pots around on.
 There was some artistic license granted and I put a few black smith twist in it so it you could tell it was not made commercially.
3/8in  square hot rolled iron makes up the top and the frame is 1/2in hot rolled iron.

An awesome gift from a customer

This is an awesome piece of stained glass art.  It is a gift (much appreciated) from a customer to help fund some tooling. Some of the custom work I did for him involves large radii.  Being the nice guy he is he is trying to make my life a bit easier.
  Right now I have to do large circles and radii by hand which is a little slow and tedious.  We're trying to get the scratch together to buy a roller that will speed things up and allow more artistic expression.  There will be a stand made for it and they will be on display/sale when we go to shows.
If you would like to contact the artist please call or send me an email and I'll get you his contact info.

Wow what a weekend! Thanks to all our awesome customers.

It was an exciting weekend!  A flat tire on the way to a show, a very beautiful gift from a customer, and lots of orders to fill made it a memorable time.  We've sold several knives and have orders for more.
This knife is ready and awaiting it's new home.
I'll be in the shop getting the trip hammer running and playing catch up on orders.  There is 600 lbs of coal waiting to be used and a big pile of steel needing some heat and hammer to make more stuff.  We may need an extra person just to run the wire wheel for clean up!  Thanks again for all the support, it means a lot and we're humbled by the help and encouragement  from the community.
  I'll do a post shortly about the awesome gift.  It deserves it's own post.
