Burton Historic Village. Burton Ohio. It is the home of the WRABA Western Reserve Artistic Blacksmith Assc. Nice group of people willing to pass on their knowledge. Quite a diverse group of people very interesting. They have hammer ins at different locations ( peoples home shops) very informative. Thanks

I'm not familiar with those folks. There was a hammer-in at a facility in Columbus the weekend before. Put on by Adlai Stein at an incubator project Downtown.
Lotta good things going on in the area in regards to blacksmithing and knifemaking. Just have to keep yer ears open and nose to the ground. Pretty low profile.

Well lets see, just finished up working at the summer camp i work at. Teaching kids woodworking and leather work. Haven't had much knife shop time, but hopefully soon I will get out there and make something.

Re: What's everybody working on?

Yes I go to that show. Also one in Cambridge Ohio it is in the fall usually very good. American Bladesmithing just had a symnosius in Troy Ohio. Or in very near future and a very good show and demo. with big time makers. Only problem is to much to absorb in one weekend. But well worth the effort and time, don't get any better. Have gone to the Warther show for many years very nice show. That being said you pass fairly close by on your travels. Thanks

Re: What's everybody working on?

Its a private summer camp. Science camp is the primary focus but with plenty of camp like activities, ie water front, canoe kayak, etc mini bikes, rifle range, archery then combined with physics, chemistry, video, photography, nature, human bio, computer, robotics, arts and crafts etc etc. Its a neat place this was my third summer. I kinda fell into it when i had time and was asked to do the leather shop and wood shop. Its been a lot of fun and enjoyable. I also am active in cub scouts with my two sons in our pack and spend time working with our whole pack. Appreciate the Thank you. I was in boy scouts and cubs as a kid and know how important those leaders were to me as a kid. Now its my turn to give back,
