The Blacksmith

For the past year, Tedwood Strong has been sharing pictures of bottle openers, spoons, forks and knives, things that he's been forging in his garage. He said, "I've only been doing this for a very short period of time, but I know that I'll be doing it for the rest of my life." And he's gotten good at it. In my micro documentary, I ask Tedwood why he picked up blacksmithing as a skill and why he loves it so much.

Constructing picture frames

7x10'' photograph sandwiched between non-glare acrylic glass and cork. Drilled through everything, then capped the screw with an acorn nut.

I've been wanting to open an Etsy shop for a while now, but I want to sell something other than prints of my work. So I decided to make frames for my photographs. I've experimented with cork board and acrylic glass, but I plan on trying different materials.
