So July has ended. It was a busy month. The shed took a bit more to get built than I hoped for but not by much. I underestimated the amount of fill I would need to level the spot for it. It is currently in the process of getting painted and I still need to build a door, but it is good enough that today I moved the anvil and forge in and dismantled the temporary structure. Here is a pic from before the painting started:
I got a batch of stainless kitchen knives started. It is good to be back into the production. I had planned on taking the entire month of July for the shed so I am right on schedule, however it is really nice to get some knives underway again.
In other news I’ll be down in Eugene for the 5160 club meeting tomorrow. It seems I’ll probably be presenting, either on my experience getting my JS stamp or stainless heat treating. It will be good to see some of the folks I know down in the Eugene area. I am looking forward to it.
I’ve got some interesting projects lining up. I’m not sure how long they are going to take to get to fruition so I’ll play it close for now but keep checking back as I’ll be sure to post updates as the projects get under way.
