Handmade axes from the students of this Sunday's class. Great job everyone who came out and completed their very own axes.

The Asian ambrosia beetle is invasive and it’s killing all our bay magnolias and 200 other species of trees now. They say once it is infested there is no cure. I found this trap on line and it actually works. Just a simple bottle with ethanol which can be liquor or Hand sanitizer with ethanol. The Beatles are attracted to it go in there and die instead of the tree. Hang them every 100 feet or so on your property. They have killed over 25 Bay magnolias on my property so this is a real threat. Hope it works, best of wishes. Be sure to do research on the Asian ambrosia beetle. #driftwoodartist#FineArt#wilmingtonart#Sculpture#Blacksmith#knifemaker#shawlakeydesigns
Steak knife. Rust resistant patina and thin blade will make your meals epic. This blacksmith's knife will be the heart of every BBQ party. When the meat is ready, hang it on a thin rope and use it as a bell, for it is forged from one piece of steel and it will sing. #handforged#handmade#forgedinfire#hammerwork#steel#blacksmith'sknife
