    Is there any thing better than watching an artist make art.
    That was most enjoyable to watch.

    Cheers Matt.
    Thanks for sharing Ray.

    My all time favourite YouTube channel. He is an artist.

    One of the things I really appreciate about him is that, as a metal worker, he has learnt how to use a wood lathe properly and can comfortably use a skew chisel to make the handle - something many so-called wood turners havenít mastered.

    Most enjoyable and instructive.

    I also happen to notice his collection/racks of hammers along the wall , next to the forge!

    Thanks Ray - I had already seen it as I subscribe to his youtube channel. He does amazing stuff. I have learned a lot from his videos over the years.

    That was a treat to watch. He has some good bits of gear there too. That is a magnificent anvil. The powered hammer would be very useful particularly if you had a forge like his too. SWMBO commented on his hands. She said they are not the hands of a blacksmith. How does he do that? I sat on my hands at that point so I was not insulted to a point that my self esteem could not cope.
