MY WISH LIST
John desired to make his own edge tools as a carpenter. His introduction to blacksmithing came through a course by Chuck Patrick, who became a mentor and friend. John progressed to assist Chuck in teaching blacksmithing classes at the Folk School in 2003, and began co-teaching with him in 2009. Together, they have developed a way to shorten the learning curve while increasing enjoyment and knowledge. John has also taught and assisted in toolmaking courses at Penland, Country Workshops, and other locations.
