    That's the way to do it, John. Set the standard from the start.
    An Uncle of mine advised me to take my first pay check after I was married, cash it at the bar, and buy everyone drinks till it was gone. He said if I waited six months to do something like that, she'd throw me out.

    Darn, I thought it was the end of the month, too. I even re-lined my forge this morning so I could make a super-duper piece. I'll post my disqualified one I made already when I get the kid to show me how. At least I have the afternoon off now.

    How about another tool making contest ? Something specific like tongs ,hoof knives ,hammers or pritchals .much easier to judge if everyone makes the same thing IMG_20150131_194659_811.jpg
