I guess after 30 years, one would find a shorter path through the woods to the shop. I had forgotten how long a walk Roy did take to his “Shop” back then.

Yeah, almost like a kid ;-)) My grandpa had one of those blacksmith’s drill presses. I suppose my uncle threw it away when he tore down the old shop.

I took a class from Roy in February and he mentioned that . I recommend everyone who can take a class they are affordable and Roy makes you feel at home.

I’d like to see him walk down the street and past a cop nowadays with a freshly sharpened axe in his hands !
LOL Thanks for the link : )

I met Roy in Portland Oregon a couple of years ago what a great guy. Thanks for letting us know about this Bob.
