Nobless Largess

Well now that the gift has been delivered and received, I can show you what's come off my glass bench lately. The person the gift was for has recently taken up bee keeping and is a medieval re-enactor in the SCA, like me ... so I felt a medieval skep (that is what the straw bee hive was called) would be a good motif for this panel.  I'm pretty proud of this one because it is an original design I created and executed myself.

New shed ... New shop

Ladies and gentlefolk ... I would like to present the new home of the Oak and Hammer Forge ... ☺ ... 
I'm still in complete shock that it is finally here after 13 years of planning and saving.
I have so many people to thank in making this possible ...
Canadian Heritage Sheds (the builders), Stoney Creek Concrete (they were awesome), Michael Stewart (contractor friend who spearheaded tearing down the old shed and the pouring of the concrete pad), a long list of awesome friends (who helped through various stages) and most important of all, my best friend and the love of my life Leslie ... who I love with all my heart and who made all this possible.
There is still a lot of work to be done on the inside ... but that is winter work. Tomorrow is the final inspection!!!
