    Hi everyone been a member for a long time but have never introduced myself or posted anything.

    I’ve been making knives for over 20 years on and off but have been getting more heavily into it the last couple of years. I make a mix of forged and stock removal projects from my house in Nobleford AB.
    I can be found on Facebook as Loki’s Forge
    And on Instagram as lokis_forge

    Hey, welcome to the forum.

    I really dig that Lichtenberg thing you do with high voltage on wood.

    Todd. Weren't you the one in high school metal shop that was making shurikens?
    I know I was. LOL
    It's probably something connected to the cold prairie winters that makes us want to light fires and play with hot pieces of steel.

    I think I made the obligatory tack hammer and tried to make some other hand tools. I was more into woodworking. I do remember getting kicked out for leaving a chuck key in the metal lathe and starting it up. It took a good chunk out of the wall at the front of the room : )

    Thanks! I did a bunch of it a few years ago but found that people loved looking at it more than they did buying it!
    I’ve still got a few bins full of epoxy filled wall pieces that I can’t sell even for the price of the wood.
